Shannon Anderson is an artist who grew up in Astoria, OR. Now she lives in Portland and works at Albertina Kerr’s Portland Art and Learning Studios, where she creates expressive and “exciting” colored pencil drawings in her signature style. Some of Shannon’s favorite television and cinema references that appear in her drawings are the British Royal Family, the Swiss Family Robinson, and Crocodile Dundee. When she’s not making drawings at PALS, Shannon enjoys shopping: “I’m into jewelry, and I’m into DVDs. And clothes. I’m also into posters,” she says.
