Medium: Acrylic, oil, and mixed media painter
Shannon is an artist who lives near Montejunto, Portugal. This was a recent endeavour, however — giving up the old ridiculously busy lifestyle she used to live in London (the boring job, the small rented flat, and societal expectations of “shoulds”), she threw it all in the past to live the life of her dreams in Portugal. Simply, in London, there was no time to wake up and dance in the sunshine or love other people deeply!
She is also a Buddhist and runs a podcast called the Curious Bodhi on spiritual awakening and the influence spirituality has as human beings reach a new height in economics, philosophy, politics and systems thinking like spiral dynamics. She is literally building an eco-house with her own hands as we speak to be living off-grid and step gently on this earth. Creativity and Bhakti: the love for God, are the two driving forces that keep her spirit bright.
Shannon’s early work is characterised by touchable 3-dimensional abstract shapes and luminous colours. Vibrant colour always formed the essence of her painting as energy and emotion on canvas. Over the years, she branched into formative acrylic works, refining her style and expressing what she loves most: ancient Hindu and Buddhist symbolism, devas and deities, fantasy and mind-landscapes, and the magic of nature.
