Hello! I am Shannon from Shannon Marie Makes. Upcycling found material comes naturally to me. It really is my special form of magic. I love to breathe new life into broken, forgotten, or soon-to-be-discarded items. Everything from my little robot sculptures and collages to my larger-than-life public art dolls was created from the most basic materials.
I am a full-time artist, an obsessive maker who loves to redeem rusty garage hardware, scraps of wood, old textiles, papers, and discards. I used to source my material from thrift shops and flea markets, but now, people seek me out to offer their wonderful discards! With the proper care, I really believe that beauty can be pulled from broken things and I love the challenge a new box from a garage clean-out creates.
ABOUT MY PRODUCTS:
My pieces are all one of kind and created with love! They make great gifts for those hard-to-buy-for individuals in your life who value their own uniqueness. Everything I make has an element of whimsy to it. I aim to make things that allow adults to remember the kid in themselves and find the wonder in life again. Thanks for visiting my page!
