Shona was born in 1988 in Santa Clara, California and wanted to be an artist at four years old, after watching a Jim Henson instructional VHS on how to be a cartoonist.

 

In 2015 she moved to Portland, Oregon to make tattooing a career. Her preferred tattoo style can be best described as surrealist blackwork, with a penchant for the macabre. Shona loves watching sci-fi/horror films, hanging out with her cat Tesla, traveling, and furthering her artistic practice through mixed media collage, printmaking and assemblage.

 

Shona has earned both a BFA in Printmaking from Arizona State University and an MFA in Print Media from Pacific Northwest College of Art.
