Shannon McNamara | SMcN Art & Design

Visual Designer • UX Designer and Analyst • Artist

I've spent my career conceptualizing, designing, building, and animating graphics in the sports and entertainment industries. I have moved towards focusing my professional career on UX Design and strategy, studying at MICA to get a Master's in UX Design. I make paintings and illustrations in my free time.

Personal Work

My personal art varies from year to year, but usually features portraits of sorts, or nature scenes. My favorite thing to do is play with light and color no matter which media I'm using.
