Space Babes Art was a long time dormant dream while Shanna tried to manage a full time job, school, mental health issues, staying alive and more, UNTIL May, 2017 when she designed and received her first pin. Inspired by other makers and her long time love for creating and making art, she was able to get her shit together and do this damn thing.
Now, Space Babes Art thrives out of a second room in a basement apartment in Salt Lake City, Utah. Catch Space Babes + her wares at local shows including Craft Lake City, Brewstillery, Farmers markets and more!
I always wanted to be an artist, then I realized I always was.
At five years old, if someone asked me what I wanted to be when I grew up, I would say “an artist.” At ten years old, I would say “an artist.” At fifteen years old, I would say “maybe something in environmental sustainability, and maybe do some art in my off time.” At twenty years old, I would say “I don’t know if I want to grow up, I just want to help make things better.”
Now, at twenty-four years old, when people ask me what I am and what I want to be, I say “I am and want to be a better environmental and social justice advocate, I work a day job, and I am an artist.”
I am always open to art or pin trades, collaborations or other partner work.
