Shannon is a 22yr old animation graduate from the South Yorkshire, United Kingdom.
Shannon always knew she wanted to be an artist and when watching anime and countless behind the scenes from Pixar in her early teens did she realise that she wanted to pursue a career in animation. Her art teachers told her that drawing manga wouldn’t get her anywhere, so she focused on traditional fine art to get grades. At university, she honed her skills and mixed her traditional art with her love for manga, forming her unique art style. Shannon recently worked as the director and lead animator on ‘Guardian’, a final year project. She received high praise for art direction and animation. Shannon can’t wait to start work on Paradise!

I love anime since I was a kid, and when I met Studio Ghibli it blow my mind. I lived in Japan a couple of months and that's when I decided to live doing this beautiful kind of art. My dream is to work making art in any place of the earth all my life.
