In his photographic series of "Bookscapes" the assembled libraries only exist in his photographs. From photos of different bookshelves, he reorganizes them into a creative digital composition of a new thematic "Bookscape."

Some examples of "Bookscape" themes are Hollywood, Rock and Roll, Fashion, Architecture, Art, etc.
Shuter allows her past experiences to inform her artwork: the bold colors and graphic patterns for which Shuter is renowned, are largely inspired by the artist’s family’s roots in the textile industry. Her work is motivated by her explorations of fashion, symmetry and composition, with an ongoing analysis of ego, character, connection and a constant desire for self-expression. Shuter currently lives and works in Toronto.
