Shannon's inspiration comes from her passion for people

and the inner being we can not see.

Kansas City based artist, Shannon Knopke is most known for her portraits and figurative work. Her on-point compositions and ability to capture a moment, makes Shannon's work unique and popular among the well seasoned and aspiring collectors alike.

Shannon's primary collection is commissioned work and hangs in private collections or homes.  Working from photography and choosing the best image is the first step. "Working with my clients form start to finish with image selection to the final piece is all part of the process. Understanding the story behind the subject makes each piece more meaningful and an honor to paint."
