Shawna Erback is a Canadian artist with loyal collectors from around the world. Her art is featured in galleries, gift shops and on the walls of celebrity clients.
Shawna started painting when she was a child, but started her journey to becoming a professional artist the 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, lonely moons and 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 has displayed her art at prestigious shows all over the US and Canada. She was the feature artist at the Canadian Country Music Awards in 2011 and was invited to make a special appearance to present her work to the nominees and stars in Beverly Hills during Oscar week in 2012. She has developed many licensing partnerships and her art is featured on a variety of products. In 2010, Shawna was welcomed into the elite DreamWorks Animation Fine Art Program and creates paintings inspired by animation films like How To Train Your Dragon and Puss In Boots.
