Shannon Faber is a multi-disciplined artist native to Denver Colorado. She specializes in monochromatic works and creates emotional, provocative images in a variety of mediums, her favorites being ink and tea.
Shannon's illustrations explore the balance between the beauty and despondency of mental illness and the challenges of the human experience, encouraging viewers to approach darkness with curiosity rather than fear.
Her wide scope of works range from murals, fine art and literary illustrations to photojournalistic photography and unique adornments for the stage.
"Many of the images that enchant my imagination are created in deep black and grays, where only emotion exists, separate from the real world.
This type of art gives my imagination an authentic direction."
- Shannon Faber, from October, a Book of Poetry, Derangements and Curiosities, 2017
