About the Artist
ARTIST: Shanon O’Bracken (ni Mitchell). 1972
Shanon is an artist, graphic designer based in Monaseed, Co. Wexford.
Shanon creates abstract botanical landscapes full of colour, textures & layers combining painting & printmaking elements using mixed-media.
The variety of the Irish land & seascape provides innate patterns, shapes & form to explore, with an aim to convey the spirit, mood & sense of place. Shanon is inspired by the magic of nature from the changing seasons, native botanicals & the beautiful landscape surrounding her home-studio in rural Wexford & of course… the ever changing Irish weather.
A graduate of Art School in 1993 & with a career spanning over 2 decades, Shanon’s illustrative style & minimal colour palette has developed over her time working in design & illustration in London, Dublin, Wicklow & present day Wexford.
Shanon is also founder of Bracken Arts, Creative Art Workshops for Children, a fun & imaginative arts programme designed to inspire & encourage the creativity in every child through making & creating!
