Creating visual art from Alberta, Canada, I invite viewers to suspend linear thinking and perceive my mixed media as a sum of elements, pieces of a puzzle that when re-shuffled, evoke personal memories and surprising sensations.
My narrative is based on the tricky dynamics of desire and craving, especially when exploring the light and darkness of people.

My passion is storytelling in all forms.

A Changing Landscape – The Female I,
a timely exhibition of women artists for International Women’s Month.

Ironic, didactic and mischievous, Shannon Kernaghan’s collages of women’s bodies are pieced together with crow’s heads and paper doll cutouts. They tell viewers the story of a female experience in which onlookers have historically directed norms around female appearances and sensuality.
