Bio:
Multi Media Artist Shannon Kringen grew up in San Diego California and Whidbey Island Washington. She is a self taught photographer with a background in Graphic Design. She has worked as a figure model in Seattle for 22 years. She completed her BA degree in Arts and Literature from Antioch University in 2013. She sees her creative expression as a tool to connect with community and a way of increasing self awareness and tap into a deeper wisdom within.

Artist Statement:
I work with cameras and paint improvisationally. I am very kinesthetic and use my whole body when I create.

In my photography, I fall in love with shape, texture and light while out wandering. I like to capture what is naturally there but in a way that abstracts it and allows the viewer to notice something new and different about ordinary physical reality. I carefully compose all my photos spontaneously as I am shooting moving the camera angle until I see what looks like a balanced, dynamic composition.

In my painting, I allow my hands to move intuitively on the canvas creating shapes and textures that feel right. I repeat patterns and choose colors from somewhere beyond my thinking mind. I am very inspired by the repeating patterns I see in nature. Plants and animals move me a great deal.

I am taping into my unconscious and go into a dream like state when I create art.

 thoughts on being a “loner” yet loving an audience by Shannon Kringenwas
 very happy doing the world naked bike ride yesterday.  i sometimes 
don’t talk to the nice people there very much and i am sort of the 
“loner” even though i am happy to be with them in the ride.  i had nice 
conversations with two of the men in the group and one female and shared
 some nice words.  felt more a sense of community yesterday.  (during 
our world naked bike ride ONE GUY ON THE STREET YELLED OUT “Goddess 
KRING” this made me happy!!!!!)    healing some of my social fears 
maybe?  i am very focused and confident and comfortable about waving and
 smiling at the public/audience people watching us ride our bikes in the
 parades and group bike rides but am more reserved when talking with 
fellow bike riders.    it makes me naturally high to be in front of 
audiences in fact!  my more outgoing personality comes out…and i love 
to video myself and share that with the public and i love speaking in 
front of the public when invited.  and i love to model in front of 
people obviously! i have done it 23 years!  learning who the real 
shannon is! feels good.  i wanna keep shining my light and inspire 
others to be honest and open and authentic.  create,  explore!   
manifest your dreams etc.  learn, heal, grow,  keep exploring this life.#‎video‬
 i will be adding videos every week i think now! making new ones AND 
uploading classic Goddess KRING videos when i get them digitized from 
VHS tapes! 2 ways to see my videos- Vimeo:
