Shawna is a ceramic sculptor creating animals with big personalities; imbuing them with human like characteristics and personas.
In addition to her sculpting, Shawna is an advocate for using the arts as an integral part in a self-care regiment. She shares these beliefs during weekly videos on her Facebook page and helps people find adaptive solutions for their studio practice.
Starting the summer of 2017, she began leading art classes at the Travis Mills Foundation. With the help of some amazing sponsors who help offset the cost of the clay, she is able to volunteer her time to help bring the message of “art as therapy” to the recalibrated warriors and their families who attend the retreats.
