Shannon Fody is an award-winning artist who recently returned to Michigan. She is a graduate of Laguna College of Art where she concentrated on academic painting and drawing techniques. Shannon is known for her fresh and intimate portraiture, painted from either life or from reference.

“I like my work to be expressive, and a little ambiguous. Although I want my work to represent the subject I am painting, I don’t want it to be a complete illusion. I want the viewer to have an insight into how the piece was created.”
