Residency project

During her time at Deep Bay, Shannon will be working on a series of mixed-media drawings titled Gathering Myself. Shannon will hike daily through Riding Mountain National Park, sketching and photographing the landscape. These images will provide the visual database for her series examining how an individual’s identity is shaped and influenced by their surroundings.
