About Us

Kennison Arts started out with a plan to recycle glass, and in doing so, save it from filling up our landfills. Years later it has evolved into including sheet metal, and it never gets boring!  So sometimes you will find our work is solely glass, sometimes it is completely metal, but most times you will find it is an interesting combination of both, along with local driftwood and stones.
 
We pull inspiration from the ocean, the treetops, and everywhere in between, using colours that range from bright & vibrant to soft & natural.  There are always surprises in store!
 
Whether you're looking for the perfect piece to brighten a room, or a handmade gift with a bit of a story behind it, you've come to the right place.
 
We hope you enjoy our work as much as we enjoy creating it!

Shannon comes from a family of artists, with a long history in the field herself. She started Kennison arts with a goal to make something beautiful that helped her environment. She has pulled her family together to join her in the studio, and made a business out of it!

James is a retired mechanic who is using his skills with tools to bring recycled sheet metal to life.  His experienced hands have gone from repairing vehicles to engraving fine details into feathers and leaves and texture into every piece art to make each one unique.

The Mess

Madi comes from the same family of artists with a much shorter history than shannon, and certainly a more... modern point of view. Her experience with digital art translates surprisingly well to the painting booth, though real life paint sure makes a real life mess!
