Bio:
Multi Media Artist Shannon Kringen grew up in San Diego California and Whidbey Island Washington. She is a self taught photographer with a background in Graphic Design. She has worked as a figure model in Seattle for 22 years. She completed her BA degree in Arts and Literature from Antioch University in 2013. She sees her creative expression as a tool to connect with community and a way of increasing self awareness and tap into a deeper wisdom within.

Artist Statement:
I work with cameras and paint improvisationally. I am very kinesthetic and use my whole body when I create.

In my photography,  I  fall in love with shape, texture and light while out wandering. I like to capture what is naturally there but in a way that abstracts it and allows the viewer to notice something new and different about ordinary physical reality. I carefully compose all my photos spontaneously as I am shooting moving the camera angle until I see what looks like a balanced, dynamic composition.

In my painting, I allow my hands to move intuitively on the canvas creating shapes and textures that feel right. I repeat patterns and choose colors from somewhere beyond my thinking mind. I am very inspired by the repeating patterns I see in nature. Plants and animals move me a great deal.

I am taping into my unconscious and go into a dream like state when I create art.

Recommendations:

"Shannon is a serious model. She shows up on time, works together with me to find the right attitude of the pose,
is enthusiastic and committed to the long haul. She is great in every way. Professional, creative and so very nice to work with!"

~Tip Toland.

"When I think of Shannon, I know that I am lucky to know her, and even more importantly,
It is always great when I have the chance to work with her as my model. I enjoy listening to her when she tells me about her projects
and what she might be doing with her art. I have been drawing nude people in classes and also drawing groups since I was in high school,
so that's about 15 years for me at this point. I think that Shannon might have been one of the first people that I worked with at a young age.
As my experience as a draftsman has developed I have found that the model does make a difference in my drawings.
In my really good drawings I believe there is some type of psychological connection that the drawing speaks
of long after I have drawn the image. The way the model sits and the aura that one projects is mainly where
this psychology must be interpreted. Shannon is one of those models who's body language isn't a facade,
she is pure at heart and can't really hide what is on her mind, and you can tell. I find that it becomes evident in my drawings
when working with her. As an observer I have always been interested in Shannon's work, from her video based
cable access TV show that was always so cool to the shoes she paints,
I find it very stimulating the way she interprets the world and the ideas that she is working through"  ~Jonathan Clarren



"A font of creativity and the Queen of Seattle figure models, Shannon has worked with leading artists in the Seattle area for years,
is the subject of innumerable paintings and drawings, and she is compelling, inventive, and truly professional.
Rare indeed is the Seattle-trained figurative artist who has not drawn her. I have worked with Shannon in a quite number of my college
and private figure classes, and I can strongly recommend her work as an artists' model."
~Jamie Bollenbach


"I worked with Shannon for several years, hiring her regularly to model for many of the figure drawing classes that I taught.
Shannon is easy to work with and very reliable; she also has great endurance on the stand,
an important quality that is easy to take for granted. I would recommend her to anyone looking for a good figure model."  ~Katy Stone


"I have used Shannon as an Art model for over ten years, and I will continue to do so in the future.
She is reliable, creative and trustworthy, a wonderful asset to the art community."  ~Preston Wadley

"Shannon is a creative thinker and artist in her own right.
Her life is her canvas and she aspires to the Bauhaus ideal that an artist's hand should touch everything in their lives.
She was always a pleasure to see in class and the students always knew how valuable she is.
I was particularly fond of her as a model, because she always presented a challenge
that I could never quite capture. Many of my students made similar comments.
An elusive muse who inspires us to do better."  ~Jon Rader Jarvis
