Shannon Duley lives and works in Atlanta. She studied Industrial Design at Georgia Tech, where she was challenged to fuse form and function in the most minimalist way she could manage. After graduation, Shannon worked for Georgia-Pacific doing marketing and design for seven years, all the while painting on nights and weekends. In 2017, she signed with Gregg Irby Gallery, and one year later, she left the corporate world to lead marketing at the gallery – truly a dream come true.
Shannon is inspired by her surroundings, and influenced by seasons and their mood. Her favorite day is Saturday…enjoying a cup of coffee while flipping through a stack of catalogs and other recent musings, she reminds herself of all the inspiration she soaked up that week. She then gets to work creating something that’s happy; that brings light and life to the space around it. An element of optimism comes to life through her work, and she wants to give others some of that contagious spark!
