Yay! I am honored to be a FEATURED ARTIST at this fun celebration welcoming SPRING! The new Towpath Trail Lantern Parade is a celebration of light, creativity and sustainability welcoming spring to the banks of the Cuyahoga River. The parade will take place on March 9 at 6:30 PM. It will start and end at Sokolowski’s Overlook and include a 1.6 mile roundtrip along the Towpath Trail. Free parking available at 1429 Abbey Ave. The parade will feature local artists displaying illuminated art made from recycled materials. The lanterns will celebrate nature and encourage environmentalism. Planning to join us? Make and bring your own lantern from recycled materials and a battery powered light! Hosted by Canalway, the Towpath Trail Lantern Parade is supported in part by the residents of Cuyahoga County through a public grant from Cuyahoga Arts & Culture.

About image
Hello and welcome to my portfolio.

I am Shannon Marie and I make Mixed Media Magic!

Paper scraps, old hardware, wood and discards of all kinds are transformed into whimsical characters, prints, cards, coasters, apparel and more! I see beauty in the brokenness and love sharing my passion for making things from practically nothing with others.

My workshops and art camps provide a place where kids and adults have the opportunity to explore, experiment and create. I have run art workshops in small traditional classroom settings, homeless shelters, corporate offices, libraries, malls and large-scale public events.

I love creating - my next project, class or camp is always my favorite!

A few more facts:
I am listed on the Ohio Teaching Artist Roster -https://artslearning.ohioartscouncil.org/directory/name/shannon-timura/
* I was the director of Art Education for a performing arts school where I ran the department, taught classes, held shows and did set design for the theater department.
* I am a public artist. I have created murals, and sculptures for businesses, brands and cities. My big claim to fame is my project for Olay that landed me a spot in Oprah's O Magazine where I was named a Fearless, Female Artist of the year. (2018)
*My Fairy Camp is a sell out each year and this year I am adding additional weeks to accommodate more kids!
* Robots, Owls, Frogs and big eyed witchy girls are frequent characters in my work.
* Making art and teaching art was my dream as a child - and now I am doing both. Five-year-old Shannon would be SO PROUD...
