Shannon Glasheen is a Mission District, SF based artist. She is a trained fashion designer and self taught artist who creates multi-media sculptures from recycled bicycle parts. These parts are collected from local shops and much of the other material, such as the wood mounts, are found objects from the sidewalks of the Mission. Her inspiration in drawn from years of being a bike messenger and having a passion for repurposing materials that would otherwise end up in the landfill.
Shannon grew up in New Hampshire and studied Fashion Design at The School of Fashion Design in Boston, MA. After relocating to San Francisco in 2010, she furthered her education and received a bachelor’s degree in Fashion Marketing and Management from The Art Institute of CA-SF.
