Shannon Bourne is an artist and educator whose career has led her to take on a variety of roles. While experimenting with and creating art in the mediums of both of printmaking and ceramics, she also works as a graphic designer, prop-maker, and art director for the television and film industry. In addition to film work and teaching at UNCW, Bourne also has the unique opportunity to organize and participate in the Print Big Steamroller Woodblock festival held each spring on campus. These varied areas of interest all end up coming together to have both exciting and surprising influences on each another.

Throughout her academic and artistic career, she was awarded several scholarships, grants, and residencies, including a study abroad printmaking intensive in Corciano, Italy. Bourne has participated in several group shows and solo exhibitions on local, national, and international levels. Most recently, her graphic design work and props can be seen on the Fox television show, "Sleepy Hollow", and the soon to be released Sony Pictures Film, "I Saw the Light".
