" A powerful wave of abstract mark making has taken me over. I love the organic process of large loose movement with a slight dose of a landscape, trees, or sky. Most of my work is large...sometimes in the form of diptychs or triptychs. The process of painting is rewarding ...providing space for meditation and pure exploration."
" My Industrial Quilts ™ are influenced by the Industrial Revolution, the Mill Girls, and technology. They are conceptual art quilts made with layers of wire cloth and hand stitching with wire. The contrast of machine-made versus hand-made is part of the aesthetic. I incorporate salvaged computer parts and patinated copper as well as other industrial objects in a standardized, repetitive format alluding to factory made products while at the same time maintaining the intimate, personal, and innovative aspects of quilt making. My art quilts combine traditional and non-traditional quilt making"

After teaching public school art for six years, I needed an antidote - a "remedy" for the noise of daily life which often distracted me from what truly brought me joy. I wanted to finally prioritize my own artistic pursuits and just as importantly, encourage others to do the same.
Home Remedy Studio has become a sanctuary for creativity. It's a space where kids (and the young at heart!) can learn and grow and develop their own creative voice.
I'm Shannon Hays—designer, illustrator, surface pattern designer and doodler. I began my design career more than twenty years ago as an art director for a publishing company. After many years of designing layouts, logos, stationery and brochures,
I discovered a new passion for illustration.
I now happily spend my days drawing cute characters and creating playful patterns. It's been such a joy to see my designs come to life on books, stationery, puzzles, wall art and fabric.
