Shanda's Story

Shanda has always had a passion for animals.

    Her family moved to Sugar Land, TX in 1978.  She attended college at Stephen F. Austin, graduating with a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree in 1983.  She started her first career at a small advertising agency in Houston, quickly realizing that was not a career "fit" for her, although that is how she met her husband, so it was certainly the universe's plan!  She then worked at an art gallery called Shelby Fine Arts, representing nationally and internationally known artists.  She got married in 1986, worked in sales at Dale Carnegie training, and then got her real estate license in 1990. 




Shanda's horse's name is Bear, and he was originally a rescue baby in Kentucky,  and Shanda got him from the Houston Mounted Patrol in December 2010.  He has found his forever home with the Kearns family!


    It only seemed natural to combine her love of animals with her love of painting,  and so she started "Paintings by Shanda" in 2016.   The longer she lives and has time to reflect on what is important in life, the more she realizes that the people and animals that come into your life along your journey are the most important pieces of your life.  They provide your most valuable life lessons, your inspiration and help you to become the best version of yourself.  The value and sense of joy received from the special relationships with both humans and animals is unmatched by anything else in life!  

In 2012, Shanda's passion for painting was "awakened" when she started teaching painting sessions/classes on a part time basis at a local sip-n-paint place called Paint Until You Faint.  She enjoys the fun and pleasant people who come there to relax, have some fun and explore their creativity through painting.  This timing became the "perfect storm" . . . .awakened passion for painting combined with a life long passion for animals!

Shanda's hope is that you feel the same way about the animals you love and that she can create a beautiful painting of your precious pet that will touch your soul every time you look at it!
