Shannon Celia has been painting professionally for about 8 years in oil and lately, she’s been concentrating on her favorite theme of seascapes and boats. Since she’s been doing this, Shannon has won four awards since January, which confirms her belief that we should follow our passions when creating. Shannon lives in the Conejo Valley of Southern California and is a member of various local art associations such as the juried Thousand Oaks Art Association, The Buenaventura Art Association and the Westlake Village Art Guild.
“My passion is painting contemporary seascapes created in oil, using palette knives with a focus on color, mood, texture and light. I believe that seeing the world through an artist's lens is a gift, so I celebrate by observing, contemplating and painting the subtle details!”
