About Artist

Shawnalee Anderton

I am an artist first and foremost. I have such vivid memories of my grandmother’s studio space where she painted. The smells of oil paint drying on the canvas….I am so lucky that my parents encouraged my creative side as I grew. Eventually, after graduating from high school, I received my training in both design & photography at Emily Carr University in Canada. This formal education in the arts combined with the influence of my grandmother, led me to see the human form through an artist’s lense.
