Shannen is a self-taught artist living in San Diego, California. Originally from Ireland, Shannen moved to the US with her now husband in early 2018. With a bachelor’s degree in early years education, Shannen had been a teacher for most of her adult life but when the pandemic hit in 2020 her priorities changed, as they did for a lot of people. This shift in how she viewed the world and life in itself made her more eager than ever to move towards a career that was as fulfilling as possible and reflected her true self. With the support and motivation of her husband, family and friends she made the decision to become a full-time artist. Shannen grew up in a very creative household so art was always a natural part of life, even as a child painting, drawing and creating is where she would find peace, solace, concentration and flow.
