A Chicago-area native, Shannon Dunn attended Illinois State University in Normal, Illinois where she studied Art and Education.  From Artist to Educator, Set Designer to Muralist, Shannon’s love affair with art has displayed itself in various occupations over the years.  Her painting style is inspired by her background in printmaking and her love for stylized, simplified drawings.  Never one to stick to one medium, Shannon paints in oils, ink, acrylic, and resin.  While her work is largely focused on the human figure, she draws inspiration from the natural world, observations of social behavior and her spiritual beliefs. Shannon’s work has been shown in various solo and group exhibitions at galleries and public venues throughout the Pikes Peak Region.  She currently resides in Colorado Springs, CO with her husband and two children.
