Shannon Byers Fogle ‘Starseed’_edited_ed

Shannon Byers Fogle

Starseed  |  Digital Mixed Media on Metal  |  24 x 36 inches

$2500 - $3200 (Sliding Scale Pricing)

Shannon is a Multidisciplinary Artist who began revealing her 2D Artwork in 2021. Shannon’s Art ranges from things she feels strongly about, to personal experiences that are her own. “In those circumstances, I go through a process of self analysis.” Says Shannon, “Forced to look at myself in a different light, like a cracked mirror with fragments of truths waiting to be found.” Whether it be Painting, Photography, Digital Art, or a combination of all 3, she is driven to push the limits of her Artwork. That drive is not only Self Expression, but for the Viewer to walk away with a hopeful reminder of the feelings we try to push down inside. “They may take something completely different from the Piece.” Shannon adds, “I actually love that, as long as it gives them some sort of emotion, especially one they didn’t know they needed to feel.”

Joslyn Culver 

Break Free |  Mixed Media: acrylic, mannequin, found objects |  18 x 18 x 26.5 inches


Raised in the Bible Belt, moving to Tucson in my early 20s unknowingly sparked a transformative journey from being what I was told to be to being who I truly am. Now in my 50s, I am still evolving in my person and art from jewelry making to acrylic on canvas, furniture, and walls, to 3-D art. The drive for my art is to help other women heal and to inspire and encourage them in their own journeys to become their true selves. I am self taught and excited to be on this journey.

Both the Ionian sea with its sun and sand, as well as the Alps during summer vacations, with mountain villages and rocky peaks, have shaped the inspiration of her art.
