Born to a family of designers, artists and writers in San Diego, its no wonder Shannon Stevenson has chosen a career in art. She proved to possess artistic talent, creating mature photo realistic works at an early age that gathered respect from established artists. Following a family tradition of design, Shannon proceeded to study clothing design and pattern drafting in college and worked in the fashion industry for a brief stint.
Moving to San Francisco’s vibrant art scene in 1993, Shannon eventually began to feel the pull back to fine art and started a series of photo realistic studies to firm up her techniques in different mediums from watercolors to oils. Her artistic expression continues in the digital realm with 3D models for animation, gaming, and commerce. She has recently began focusing on creating content for the burgeoning VR (virtual reality) industry.
Having lived in San Francisco for over 20 years, she is always amazed by the Bay Area’s vibrant culture and incredible natural beauty. Living in an area with such an abundance of art, music and community continually inspires her artist endeavors. She strives to balance traditional design aesthetics with state-of-the-art technology to create unique and compelling artwork.
