Shawna Erback is a Canadian artist who has loyal collectors of her work from around the world. Her art is featured in galleries, gift shops and on the walls of celebrity clients. Her art collections can be found on TV and movie sets, licensed products and in the homes and offices of tens of thousands of private collectors.
Shawna started painting when she was a child, but her journey to becoming a professional artist began during Christmas of 2003, a month after the death of her father. Her collectors have followed the journey of a little girl through fantastical fields and forests, past sad and lonely moons, on the backs of giant turtles and fairy peacocks. They have met her special friends, like her faithful heart pet, grand giraffes and majestic lions.
Shawna offers a unique style of dreamscapes, blending together surrealism and fantasy with gothic or whimsical tones, depending on where her mood takes her. With each stroke of her brush, she weaves together a story. She draws the viewer into her world where they can sit together for a while and share a moment.
