Shauna O Designs

My work affixes a subtext narrative to a common object or idea in order to provoke a societal response. My work is subversive in nature, containing deranged visuals and a schizophrenic sense of humour, appropriating from our childhood desires and patterns of thought. My conceptual and creative practice centres on the character of the little girl, and her growth through living in the world with other people and creatures and environments.

I graduated from UBC Okanagan (previously OUC) in 1998 with a Bachelor of Fine Arts, graduating with distinction. Since graduating, I have been involved with the arts community in Kelowna working in galleries as well as volunteering with various arts organizations and special events. I have a studio practice, both art and craft-based, and have exhibited work locally, nationally and internationally.
