My name is Shannon Taylor, and I am a painter, illustrator, and educator based out of Oakland, California. I am a Professor at the California College of the Arts, and teach within the Undergraduate Illustration, Pre-College, and Extended Education programs. I have also been the Director of Art and Restoration at Children’s Fairyland in Oakland since 2012. I exhibit work extensively both in the Bay Area, and internationally, and contribute to printed and published media, as well as participating in fellowships and residencies.
I celebrate soft fabrics, cold drinks, and old, friendly dogs.
