"Just because you haven't found your talent yet doesn't mean you don't have one” Kermit the Frog

Shanna is a Texas born and raised artist who first fell in love with sculpture and went to art school for 3D animation and graphic design. Upon completion of secondary education, she went to work making children’s-based video games and then large format printing. It was not until later in life that that she decided to refine her painting and fine art skills. Although she has a family history rooted in the Native American community it was not until she and the Tipi Dude were married that she truly fell in love with the Native American history, culture, and its artwork influences. Shanna’s medium of choice is typically watercolor or acrylics, but you may also find her sculptures, or jewelry scattered around the resort. She is passionate about finding ways to showcase her artwork in the most unique way such as Ozans inside the tipis, original t-shirt designs or on the back of a chair.
