Artist Statement

Her passion for the arts has kept her involved in community arts programs, craft markets and the theatre communities for the past decade, and she is excited to establish new roots in the lower mainland. She completed her Bachelor in Education in 2019, specializing in visual arts and history.

Shannon taught at multiple private schools before deciding to pursue alternative education avenues. Currently, she is building her own arts practice, under the name Peyton Avenue Arts, as well as taking courses in Inclusive Education.

Shannon approaches teaching with a trauma-informed, holistic view of individuals, education and the arts. Inclusion and belonging are at the heart of her practice, and she aims to create a space that is safe, welcoming and supportive. Her own values, experiences and education have shaped this, and she encourages all of her students to bring their own individuality to their art practice.

With a passion for storytelling and character design, Shannon weaves her love of peopleand fascination with social practices into her own storyworlds. She adores stories in all forms, and loves to share ideas and skills with young creators. When not writing or drawing, she spends her time outdoors, photographing the local scenery (which she subsequently paints in watercolours). She is a lifelong learner, and brings to her work curiosity, imagination and enthusiasm. Shannon is excited to share this enthusiasm with her students, and can’t wait to see what they create!

Shannon is grateful and honoured to live, work and play on the traditional and ancestral lands of the Kwikwetlem, Musqueam, Squamish, Stó:lō and Tsleil-Waututh First Nations.
