What is your occupation?

Art Educator

How long have you been a member of the Art Association? 

At least 10 years

What is your art background and why are you involved with the Art Association?

I received a BFA with a concentration in Fabric Design/screen printing & Watercolor. I have since expanded my art career to involve Acrylic and jewelry making. And anything else I can fit into my art studio! I decided to become an art educator at A!A because I wanted to offer my knowledge of art to those who needed any encouragement and want to expand their style development. I have so much fun teaching art and it has given me so much happiness and life being with others and seeing people more excited about art. The A!A has always been so supportive of me as a community member and as an artist, I am so privileged to be a part of it.

Favorite Art Association event or class? 

Every class and event at A!A is so special, I love them all! It’s great seeing all the varieties of classes. It’s such an important resource for the community to allow our creativities to shine and come together.

Fun Fact about yourself?

I tend to lose track of how long I’ve been painting and will often paint through the whole night, which I think gives a lot of my work a very surreal and dream-like look.

View and purchase Shana’s work in the Practice of Art exhibit on display in the Art Association Gallery until July 12th, 2024.
