When speaking about her work Shannon says:
“I am drawn to stories of the present that are quietly shaping our future – be it the decline of a species, or the town whose economy left it behind. I don't apply my imagination to anything beyond how to create the piece of art. I strive to honor the unbelievably vast amounts of intricate adaptations to the unprecedented rate of change in both the natural world and technology that we are experiencing in current times. Using detailed rendering, corresponding details, and ornamental design, these stories are translated to express the beauty and stillness of the moment of truth“
Below is a patch that was designed by Shannon for the Endangered Wolf Center. It depicts The Mexican Grey Wolf, an endangered species.
