“I love creating layers of interest. Everything I see- art, interiors, furniture, textiles… is like a study in color, contrast, and style.”
“Sustainability, in general, is a value system, lifestyle, and aesthetic for me. I look first for vintage, organic, locally made, sustainably crafted, first. THEN fill in with must-have pieces that are meant to last.”
Shannon receives fine art commissions from a variety of corporate and private clients, and celebrities like Carlos Santana. Her line of textiles and decorative pillows, inspired by her collections and original art work, is available at select retailers in California.
“I approach interiors, paintings, textile design, and every other creative process through the eyes of a painter. I layer texture, pattern, and color until the picture becomes complete and my clients’ rooms are transformed. Regardless of the size or medium, I love my work.”
