kindred holiday

shanna murray

Shanna creates her work from a small, sunny studio above the Erie Canal in Western NY. She believes in the limitless opportunity we all have to positively affect one another’s lives. It is in this spirit that she developed her line of illustrated decals, paper goods and stamps.

From our end, Shanna’s work is simply lovely, the details always  just right. I so admire the quiet beauty and grace her art evokes. We are so very lucky to have Shanna sending pretty things for KINDRED. Also did you notice – how could you not? – that our logo is by her.

Shanna likes snow, sparkly things, early mornings, the perfect cup of tea, buildings made from stone, black ribbon, time with loved ones, toast, collaborating, and long walks with her dog, Oliver.

She dislikes the smell of wet peanut butter when rinsing a knife, being far away from family, tropical weather.
