Shannon Chrisman, age , comes from an artistic family in many fields. Her mother, internationally known Kathleen Chrisman, got her interested in being creative at a very young age. Shannon self-taught herself hand sewing at age seven and began learning how to string beads soon after. Since then, she’s experimented with many different areas of creativity including quilting, bead work, painting, food decorating, spray paint art and many more.
In 2011 she came across a new area of art that she has been perfecting ever since: Crayon art. Originally she worked only with canvases, melting crayons into beautiful pieces of art work. She enjoyed it for a long time, but eventually she moved on to creating a style that was entirely her own; melted crayon art jewelry. Using bezels and up cycled metal works she makes her own jewelry that features a small piece of her artwork. She hopes to one day make her own bezels out of high quality metals and start her own professional jewelry line.
Her other hobbies include writing, singing and photography.
