Shane

Welcome
Thank you for visiting my website!  Growing up in Northern Illinois I gravitated towards art at a very young age. In school I excelled in art and I won numerous awards for my art from grade school through high school. I also graduated 3rd in my class.

I was granted scholarship money to study art at Millikin University as a James Millikin Scholar due to my academic achievements in high school. I was awarded both Outstanding Freshman and Outstanding Senior Art Student for my class at Millikin.

After earning my BFA from Millikin, I was accepted into the MFA program at California Institue of the Arts based on my portfolio. During my time at Calarts, I won an internship with George Lucas Games, beating out several hundred applicants.

Upon earning my MFA degree from Calarts, I worked for 3 different architecture firms in Southern California as a 3D Artist and CAD Draftsman. After working full-time for 8 years, I became a full-time consultant for another 8 years. My client list included architects, theme park designers, game manufacturers, engineers, welders, and other designers.

I currently work as a Show Set Designer for Universal Creative (Theme Park Design) in Orlando, Florida.

I'm rather quiet and unassuming, which is a stark contrast to my artwork. Art has always been the vehicle for me to let out the immense creativity and electricity I have inside. It's like my secret power.

I've always had a knack for creating unique, memorable artwork. People often recall my artwork after seeing it, sometimes 5, 10, or 20 years later! In a world where we are bombarded by hundreds of images on a daily basis, it's no easy feat to create images that people remember.
But my artwork and designs do just that.
