SSF 2016 Featured Designer Shanett Dean
Shanett Dean creates mixed media designs and conceptual artwork. Using found and curated material, Shanett finds that movement reveals an inherent language and considers design an extension of her literary influences. Her mixed media designs encourage collaboration with the patron as co-creator. Each design is pliable, thus, new sequences are created which reveal an inseparable relationship between an artist and their community. Coastal sea communities heavily influence her designs and maritime elements are recurrent in her work.
