A self-confessed gamer who stretches her imagination by transforming unexpected objects into surprising art sculptures, Shannon’s work is heavily influenced by anime, vintage platform games like Super Mario World and contemporary artists Takashi Murakami and Brad Downey. While she admits to watching animated movies and cartoons in her spare time, don’t be surprised to see a bit of cheeky innuendo or sassy humour popping up in some of her more edgy pieces.
Taking risks and pushing boundaries to achieve success is in Shannon’s DNA. A Brazilian born Kiwi and adrenaline junkie, she loves ocean swimming, soccer and extreme sports. Her animation work for projects including Starship Children’s Hospital and the Reach awareness campaign have won coveted Designer’s Best awards.
