I've set out to live a life full of creativity! Second only to my crazy family, taking ideas and playing with how they can be expressed visually is what I love. I studied visual communication design at the University of Alberta, and I continue to learn from other artists and designers here on Minted.

Thank you for taking the time to give such constructive and kind feedback on my mother's day card copy "Exemplar of Motherhood". It's great to have helpful words as a newbie here!
thank you so much for your "like" Shannon! i love your work!
Dearest Shannon :) How are you? I hope you did not bruise during that spill you had a while back! I had a horrible spill in my undergrad days in Spokane, Washington. I forgot that ice lurked beneath the melted puddles and lost all manner of traction. It was so embarrassing, and I felt the jarring in my bones! Anyways, onto happier things -- so what's this I keep hearing about maple syrup snow candy? I haven't had the pleasure yet :) And all the ice castles and snow palaces -- it all sounds so dreamy! I hope you'll have some designs soon that might incorporate them and all things about Canada as well :) Have a Happy + Lucky St. Patrick's :)
Hi Shannon, thank you so much for your like on my Llamas design!! I appreciate your support!! And I'm loving all your baby shower entries-- the simple sip and see is so striking! Best of luck and hope you have a great weekend :)
Thank you for the like, Shannon! Your Pumpkin on the Way is very clever!
Hi Shannon, thanks for the note. We haven't been skiing this year at all... hopefully we'll be able to ski during spring break. We should get together when we're in Canmore. Good luck with your submissions.
Shannon, You did really good job on all the challenges and baby shower too ! I like you pick the colors matching and so cute baby icons :) For my work seem I was always indecision lol but finally I picked them following by the polling result - Sushi I think I like a and d but the final score is B that no any feedback about B lol Thank you so much for helping me on the poll ,Shannon <3
So glad you found my advice helpful :) It's funny the things we get attached to. I can tell other people to lose it but my own designs I get way too emotionally attached lol. Glad they found a new home though because they were great icons!
Thank you so much for the likes Shannon! Your designs are lovely! Your typography is really wonderful! :-) Benita
Hi Shannon,Thank you so much for the like on my lighthearted :) You new entries are beautiful and warm welcome feeling ! Best of luck on everything oxox
Thank you, Shannon, for the like on "wrapped in ribbon". All the best to you!
Hi Shannon, thank you so much for your helpful comment on my Llama design. I appreciate you taking the time to give me valuable feedback!! And sorry I am so late in responding, I've had two sick kiddos!
Thanks for your like on "Welcome to the World" Shannon!
Thanks again Shannon ! for helping and feedback on my baby sushi poll ! I agree the copy on the top maybe looks uncomfy and something wrong.I changed it and I feel it looks more tidy :D I'll poll again tonight XX
You're welcome Shannon :) Chalkboard would be great too ! or maybe mint bg. matching with peach haha just imagine :) Your lunch and learn is already adorable and awesome idea.Thank you you too for helping me for evergreen poll.Have anice weekend.
Thank you Shannon for your comments! I have now updated polka dot blush with your suggestions! Good luck with your submissions!
Dearest Shannon :) Thank you for stopping by to jot a note of uplifting encouragement :) I've grown increasingly fond of the welcoming cordiality and jovial reassurances you bring :) Meanwhile, how are you? I trust all is wonderful for you and yours ) Last year, some of my family members in the Midwest (e.g. Chicago and Missouri) had a rather cold polar vortex; I hope you are keeping warm, cozy [in the spirit of Scandinavian 'hygge' -- which seems to be the recent trend this winter season], and healthy where you are, Shannon :) As for me here in Southern California, we've had extensive rain since this new year (2017) began. And while it has alleviated the drought and brought forth blooming desert flowers, the ground's not too good at holding water, so there's some flooding in areas, and certain California drivers are not as cautious on the road... But, we like to look at the bright side of things, so we hope the weather turns up better soon here as well as for you up there in the mighty North :) With sincere appreciation for you, Shannon, and all the aesthetic things you do with care :) Marie :)
Thank you so much for the likes on my current shower submissions, Shannon! Best of luck to you!
Hi Shannon, Double thank you for the likes on evergreen and basil flower in my yard :) Love your folk art series so much!It makes me smile :D Hope it wins and picks for West Elm challenge !

Thank you for the like, Shannon!

Hi Shannon, Thank you so much for the nice message :) Your work on both challenges are fantastic ! I just had not much time for birth announcement so I focus on WE only :)) Wishing you succeed in both challenges and sells <333
Hi Shannon! Thanks so much for the like! Your Pin UP design is so cute! Good luck in the challenge!
Shannon, thanks so much! I am way too intimidated to enter an art challenge at this point. :)
Hi Shannon, wow, thank you for all those likes, that's so encouraging! All the best to you!
Thank you so much for liking my work! Very truly appreciate it... Means a lot to me. Am new to minted--so it is very encouraging :)
Thanks for your support Shannon. Made my day! Love this artistic community!
Hi Shannon, thank you for your 'like' to my art earlier this week. This is the first time I submit my art for a Minted challenge and I'm still finding my way around in the site so I really appreciate it. Best, Jaqui
Hi Shannon I just saw the new pieces in your beautiful collection!! I love them all!! I have many friends who are "runners" you should do one of that also it would make such a beautiful gift! I hope these win :)
Thanks so much for your comments about my work! Wow- that is just so wonderful to hear that you connect with it- the way I hope that someone would...yes lets hope WE can turn some heads...so many artists- all with such lovely things to express. Good luck to you!! And keep up the inspiring work:)
Shannon -- Thanks for the lovely comment, and best of luck to you in the art challenge! :)
Thank you for the kind notes, the helpful feedback and supporting my work all while I just ignore you--so sorry it's taken me so long to respond. Probably cost me a vote or two I get it. Anyway I'm very interested in how "Season's Best" is doing as it looks like you've taken a page from that playbook with some of your WE5 entries. These prints are very engaging and I think cutting edge and I'm very interested in how they do. I enjoy your vignettes as well. For me yes I did submit some digital stuff otherwise pretty much all my entries were going to be resubs. "Apple Cat", "The Hopes Pole" and "Piaggio Sublime" are my only new paintings. Since Spaces and Places I relocated and I was tied up doing commissioned work so pretty much ate up my time. I've got some really fun stuff coming up though... Best of luck to you maybe we'll see each other at the finish line. -Robert
