Shannon McDonald's Profile

About

Hi! My name is Shannon McDonald and I am the artist and owner of McDonald Mixed Media. I graduated from the University of Massachusetts at Dartmouth with a Bachelors of Fine Arts degree in Photography & Electronic Imaging (2004). After graduation I worked as a Curatorial Assistant at the Photographic Resource Center at Boston University. In 2006, I began work at Panopticon Gallery of Photography where I eventually assumed the position of Gallery Director.

It was during this time that I found my true passion for mixed media collage. I was searching for a more tactile experience with art and began cutting up my own photographs. I create all my collages in an old shoe factory which has been converted into art studios in Rockland, MA. Rockland is the town I grew up in and my great-grandmother used to work in this factory. It is a great place to create and I am so happy to share my work…

It is a great place to create and I am so happy to share my work with you.

All of my collages are created on a primed MDF board. I then cut and arrange all of the images. Some of them take years as I put them away and revisit them later. I have a vast collection of magazines and love playing with vibrant colors and paint. All of my pieces are highly emotional as my emotions are my deepest inspiration. I love every single collage and hope you share my passion. The collages are then scanned or digitally captured so I can produce the digital prints. Let me know if you have any questions about my work or process.

Love,
Shannon
