Shannon Bonatakis is a painter living among the blissful fairy-tale forests of Denver, Colorado. When she is not climbing her favorite tree she is spending her days juggling various illustration projects, and her nights huddled over wet canvas (most likely painting by candle-light). Having been acquainted with Shannon’s brush work for many years now, we can comfortably say without question, this girl puts painstaking hours into refining each piece she pushes out. Her solo show, titled Now I Lay Me Down To Sleep is up at Rivet Gallery and runs thru December 4th. So hurry and check it out if you are in the area.

She also just released this incredible collaboration print with her artist husband Josh Holland just in time for the holidays!
