About the Artist
Hi, my name is Shannon Emmanuel. I paint whimsical figurative paintings that share a message of resilience, innocence and joy. Inspired by European masters, contemporary portrait artists, turn of the century fairytales and my four biracial daughters I produce figurative artwork that celebrates diversity, love of nature and the curiosity of a child.
I work in acrylic, oil and gouache and continue to experiment with materials and techniques as I explore how the mediums best interpret my favourite motifs.
I live in a 100 year old home in rural B.C. with my husband, four daughters and several pets. Painting is a great place for me to feel connected to my inner world and share my inspirations with you. Thank you for stopping by and I look forward to sharing my work with you!Artist Bio
