Hailing from the mountains in North East Victoria, Shannon is a bike-riding, snow-boarding, river-swimming illustrator. Armed with a pair of scissors and any paper she could get her hands on, she completed her first children’s picture book ‘Snakes Awake’ (due for publication February 2022) from her home in Melbourne. She is an experienced graphic and motion designer, currently frequenting the halls of Melbourne studio, Hive Creative. There she spends her days illustrating, crafting concepts, weaving words or whipping up another slice of animated content. Thriving in the city, but longing for the country, her artwork is heavily inspired by childhood nostalgia and the natural textures of the valley she grew up in.
