Shannon Cross is a full time artist creating out of Kelowna, British Columbia, Canada, specializing in mid to large scale abstract acrylic and mixed media pieces. Shannon has been fortunate enough to travel the world and lived in Hamburg, Germany where her love of abstract art began to evolve. Self taught and working from her kitchen table in the beginning, Shannon began creating large scale pieces and taking on substantial projects for businesses in the oil sector, private business as well as private home collections. She now works from her own studio.
Her paintings emerged initially as rather industrial, contemporary forms that presented well in any homes, using bright colors, scratching's, textures and stenciling. Over time her interest grew into seasonal series of abstract florals often being compared to the mid works of Bobbie Burgers among others. Shannon's passion currently lies in her current series involving calming layers upon layers and finishing with markings that flow in a quiet twist sometimes using metallic paint lines. Her style has been thought of as contemporary that works in any space or design taste.
