““What kind of mind could take dusty shoeboxes of old family photos
and turn them into a collection that cheers people up and comforts them, too?””
- Shannon Martin
A seasoned graphic designer, entertaining writer and lifetime prankster who was born to create cards, Shannon loves what she does and hopes you do, too.
This year, Shannon’s line has expanded into bath salts, in addition to her best-selling greeting cards, magnets, beverage napkins, sticky notes and note pads.
Shannon attributes any artistic tendencies to her mother, who used to paint faces on the fruit she put in her children's lunches. She has a background in art and design and draws inspiration from Joseph Cornell, Anne Lamott and her hero, Pippi Longstocking.
She believes in community, storytelling, and making mistakes, which is where she has learned the most. Shannon is happiest on her front porch with family, friends and her most recent collection of dogs.
