Welcome! I am Shannon Kirsten, an illustrator and surface designer based in Florida. I have a degree in Fashion Design and began my illustrating career working in textile designing.  After a short jaunt working with a couple apparel companies, I decided to embark on my freelance journey in 2012.  After creating a few wedding suites for friends my whimsical and off beat lettering and floral painting style began getting noticed.  I never looked back from there.  This journey to become a working artist has been the best adventure of my life.  My mother is a mosaic artist and my father is a musician, it truly is in my blood to create.  I started painting at a very young age and knew that I would never be happy unless persuing a creative path. It is my passion, the work of my heart and soul.  I feel immensely blessed everyday for this God given talent, to truly love my career, and be able to share it with others in the hopes of inspiring and creating something beautiful together.  

These days, I work mainly with watercolors and gouache paint although sometimes I use acrylic depending on the project. I currently offer a range of prints and stationery in my Etsy shop.  It is also available for wholesale.  My shop also offers custom wedding invitation suites.   Althugh I am able for a wide range of other illustration projects and collaborations!

I work out of my home studio on the gulf coast of florida, where my two cats sit on my desk and oversee projects all day long. I am a photographer as well and have participated in many styling and directing projects over the years.  Visit my wedding photography site here and my fashion and personal work here.

My work has been included in many publications such as; vogue.com, southern weddings, grey likes weddings, ruffled blog, occasions magazine, green wedding shoes, style me pretty and more... visit my press page to read more.
