Life & Work Ethic

...Cheap Trick concert. The two bonded. Her childhood hero, now a dear friend, has set the bar high in life and business and Shannon has looked at him ever since as a big brother figure. "He is humble, real, and always kind to his fans", Shannon says of Rick. "He has always been the one I aspire to be like when dealing with my business and especially my friends and fans. I have met and worked with many celebrities and he is one of the most talented and underated of them all. On top of that - he is just a really nice guy." The photo at top left header shows Rick with a "Jol Dantzig" built Sgt. Pepper guitar painted by Shannon (one of many pieces of Shannon's art that Rick owns).

Influences Throughout Life

Charles Chaplin is an amazing influence - Shannon is in tune to his music, artistry, production, creativity, imagination, and the list goes on. He has been an inspiration since she was in her teens. Others include John Lennon and The Beatles, Norman Rockwell, Michelangelo Buonarrati, Alberto Vargas, Mark Frederickson, Craig Fraser, and Terry Hill.
