In addition to her fine art work, Shannon's editorial photography has taken her around the globe shooting reportage for Canadian, American and European Publications. Shannon has photographed and published over 150 portrait profiles of artists, musicians, activists, actors, educators and visionaries and many larger scope editorial projects.
In 2014, after taking some time at home to spend with her young children, Shannon began a transition into the field of landscape design.
From 2014-2016 she studied ecological landscape design, organic horticulture and rainwater management. Alongside her studies she worked as an organic landscape horticulturist. This in-field experience observing the connections and interactions of healthy soil and ecosystems has greatly informed her design practice.
In late 2015, Shannon began landscape designing full time, combining her love of all things green, growing and edible with her passion to create healthy community connections. Furthering her commitment to sustainable and regenerative practices, Shannon completed a Certificate in Permaculture Design through the University of British Columbia and an Education for Sustainability Course through the Green School Foundation.
Today, Shannon is a Landscape Designer and Organic Horticulture Educator. Her projects utilize regenerative techniques to improve climate resiliency, food security, soil and water health, increased biodiversity, forest succession and overall community health and well being.
Shannon is a member of the International Society of Arboriculture (ISA) and the Society for Organic Land Care (S.O.U.L). She has a Bachelors degree in Art from Emily Carr University, a Diploma in Organic Horticulture and Ecological Landscape Design from Gaia College, and a Certificate in Permaculture Design from UBC.
