Shanna D'Antonio is a thirty-six year old artist living and working in Hammond, Louisiana. Of her intensely personal, process-driven work she writes:
"My mixed media artwork centers around the concept of growth and fertility, and evokes a subtle, inherent feminine sensuality that falls outside of the traditional male gaze. My intent is to convey a beauty that is absolute female, and worthy in the ability to ripen and grow. This work is important to me as a woman whose dual life as an artist and mother are sometimes at odds. I believe that my children benefit from observing parents with successful outside interests, and feel a special obligation to my daughter to produce work with a feminist voice."
