Tofino artist Shannon McWhinney


Shannon's artwork focuses on the West Coast Experience, its landscape, wild?life and leisure activities. Her style can be best described as drawn collage and is generally created using layered pencil crayon techniques. She also enjoys creating mixed media artworks, oil paintings, watercolours, carvings and ceramic art. Her artworks are playful in nature, while also demonstrating her proficiency with detail and realism.

Shannon's art has been featured in local group exhibitions and gallery displays. Additionally, she has completed privately commissioned artworks which have included pet portraits.
Shannon is originally from Vernon BC but she has lived and worked in Ucluelet for 9 years, teaching Art at Ucluelet Secondary School.

During her training, she received a diploma in Visual Communications and a Bachelor of Fine Arts Degree from the Okanagan University College, in Kelowna, BC. After graduation, Shannon shared a gallery space with five fellow graduates and ran an artists' cooperative.

Shannon McWhinney has exhibited her work at the Vernon Arts Gallery, donated work to their yearly art auction and had her first solo show at the Alternator Gallery in Kelowna. Displays of her work have been in local restaurants, cafes and several group shows.

Visit Shannon McWhinney during the Pacific Rim Whale Festival at the Wickaninnish Centre in the Pacific Rim National Park on March 21, 2009 from 3-5pm for a poster signing.
