I have loved art ever since I could hold a crayon. My first art contest was in kindergarten and I won first place. It wasn’t until high school that I really started getting passionate about art. The finale: an annual art contest that was held at the end of the year. Professional critics, students and faculty were judges. I was granted first place for an abstract piece that I created my senior year. I went on to college and studied graphic design and fine arts, graduated from Saint Louis University in 2002.
Back in 2008 I was asked to spice up a couple of bedrooms for my niece and nephew. While working on these projects I found that I really love painting for kids and making their rooms look like their special place. It is so fulfilling to use my creative talents on a larger scale and further, so rewarding to bring a huge smile on a child or parents’ face. I started this hobby just for fun, but with all the support and hard work I’ve officially started my own business and have become Shannon’s Dream Rooms, LLC. Now I'm growing my business and keeping busy with my passion. My husband and I have 2 boys so I know first hand how important it is to create a dream room for every child.
