Equine & pet portrait, seascape, abstract & Resin Artist.

After excelling in Art at Mercedes College, I was accepted to Edith Cowan University studying Visual Arts. And later Business & Professional Accounting at Curtin University. After a 20-year career working and Studying in Book Keeping & Accounting until 2016, I began painting again and realised where my passion was.

The opportunity arose in December 2018 to open a Children's Art Studio, I have been working to create and develop a Fun and Comprehensive Curriculum to teach a wide range of skills and mediums to children whilst teaching correct technique in a manner that can be adapted to different skill levels.

Working from my East Victoria Park studio, I teach Childrens Art and run a School Holiday Program for Children and Resin Art & Other Fluid & Abstract workshops for Adults.

I have been working with Resin for 3 years and have exhibited some of my large scale Seascapes in December 2020 & sold many pieces to Western Australian clients & Galleries.

I like to teach children a wide range of mediums including Drawing, Clay, Acrylic, pastel and Oil Paints, I generally work in Pastels for custom portraits and Oils for my more contemporary style painting.

Specialising in original commissioned Custom portrait paintings and more contemporary stylistic, colourful works. I had always been an animal lover and have always been drawn to horses. Over the past 5 years I have worked hard to develop my own style of Equine Art.

Shannon was great. Could have used more time though. Took approx addition 1.5 has at home to complete. Could save time by getting students to email photos beforehand so grids could be preprinted maybe?
