Background Check

I'm Shauna. I go to art school. When I tell people this, their reply is inevitably, "Oh wow, it must be so nice to just hang out and paint all day!" And of course, yes it is amazing to be able to do something that I actually love. I chose to pursue a career in an area I have felt passionate about ever since I can remember, and it is a privilege to be able to follow this dream. But at the same time, there are many difficulties with going into a career in the arts, and studying art in school requires as much dedication and hard work as any other curriculum.

My intention with this blog is to show my work, to create a record of my experiences in the art world both as a student and in the industry. And to share my artistic journey and the lessons I learn along the way.

“If you have built castles in the air, your work need not be lost; that is where they should be. Now put the foundations under them.”
