Shannon Mello is a local, Colorado Springs artist who has been creating art her whole life. She's a lover of nature and the outdoors so the artwork she creates through materials and subject matter often have a connection to nature. Shannon uses many mediums in her artwork. This collection, called Overstory, is both mixed media and oil all on canvas.
"I hope this artwork inspires you to take risks and find your own means of creation. Maybe it’s visually, mentally, spiritually, or physically. Maybe it’s with pine cones. Whatever you do, do it with curiosity and love." - Shannon Mello
