Raised in Winnipeg to appreciate all facets of the arts community, Shannon began her career as an arts educator in the year 2000. Since 2002 she has worked as a visual arts and drama specialist in the Sunrise School Division and has explored creative ideas with hundreds of middle school students.

Shannon developed her understanding of hand building, glazing and kiln use to facilitate her art instruction. Never one to shy away from a challenge, Shannon began throwing on the potter’s wheel and has not looked back. She converted an outbuilding at her family cottage into a small studio complete with kiln. During the summer months Shannon spends many hours a week preparing clay, throwing, trimming and organizing work to be fired.

Shannon is new to sharing her craft and workspace with others. She will be delighted to talk about her projects and showcase her artwork with visitors participating in the Boreal Shores Art Tour.
