About Shannon Martin Design
A seasoned graphic designer, entertaining writer and lifetime prankster who was born to create cards, Shannon loves what she does and hopes you do, too. Shannon’s line has expanded into handcrafted soaps and candles, in addition to her best-selling greeting cards, magnets, beverage napkins, sticky notes, bath salts, gift bags, note pads and other gift items.
Shannon attributes any artistic tendencies to her mother, who used to paint faces on the fruit she put in her children's lunches. She has a background in art and design and draws inspiration from Joseph Cornell, Anne Lamott and her hero, Pippi Longstocking.
A well known presence in the gift and stationery industry, she is grateful to split her time between her home studio and the Madison Park Group office. Shannon is happiest on her front porch with family and friends, and her most recent collection of dogs.
