She is a member of Akron Soul Train and Artists of Rubber City as well as an active part of Upcycle Parts Shop in Cleveland’s St. Clair Superior neighborhood. Her public art pieces have been purchased by corporations such as Procter and Gamble and Dominion Energy, and cities such as Troy, Cincinnati and Novi, Michigan and is in charge of ongoing restoration projects for other public art sculptures. She has also completed residencies with Karamu House and Villa Bar in Novi, Michigan. Her workshops and art camps provide a place where kids and adults have the opportunity to explore, experiment and create. They often utilize discarded or unusual material such as paper scraps, old hardware, wood and cardboard to show that with a little
creativity you can make beautiful things from practically anything. Shannon incorporates the natural world and kinetic science into her projects making the creative process accessible and exciting for people of all ages.
She has run art workshops in small, traditional classroom settings, homeless shelters, corporate offices, libraries, malls and largescale public events throughout Ohio. Currently she is partnering with the University of Akron Field Station to offer nature inspired creative art workshops as well as providing classes and camps with BayArts, Upcycle Parts Shop and her own workshops through Art Dock.
Shannon’s disciplines include sculpture, collage, fiber arts and kinetic art, but her main skill is that she is able to creatively use whatever supplies are available. She adapts well to any age group and learning ability and loves to surprise participants in her workshops with their own ability and creativity.
