Shannon Hays is a designer, illustrator, surface pattern designer and doodler living in Portsmouth, NH. A graphic designer for more than 20 years, Shannon recently discovered a new passion for illustration and surface pattern design.
A mom to 3 beautiful daughters, she loves creating for the children's market. She finds inspiration everywhere and anywhere, but especially in mid-century design, children, animals and nature. Her cute characters and playful patterns appear on a range of products from greeting cards to baby books to fabric.
When she's not in her studio, you may find her walking on the NH trails with her dogs or snuggled up watching movies with her family--usually the latter.
