Hi! I’m Shawna Koontz and I am an illustrator + artist based in Seattle.
I earned my BFA at Massachusetts College of Art and Design in Boston. During my first year, I debated majoring in a lot of different areas including fashion, illustration, and photography. I ended up finding a home in painting. I found that painting allowed me to play with all of the media that interested me and gave me the opportunity to explore a myriad of topics I was passionate about.
I still choose to channel a lot of my work into celebrating (and challenging) those same topics now. I mostly work digitally these days and I am most inspired by fashion, strong women, and my desire to fight the current state of U.S. politics.
When I am not fighting the patriarchy, you can find me exploring new breweries with my husband, in search of a great taco, or admiring my fat cat Gus.
