Shawna Handke is an illustration artist who resides in Nyack and works from her home studio.  When she’s not drawing or working, she builds around the life of a mother of two young boys.  She screen prints, builds from found materials, paints, and draws daily.  Her illustrations have been featured with Dynomighty wallets, Mario the Magician, Nyack Needs a Skatepark and numerous small businesses. She’s also worked with businesses like Toms Shoes and Google. She has had both group and solo fine art shows in Omaha, Boston, New York City, and various venues in the local Rockland County area.

Her roots are in the Midwest where she first became interested in art.  She attended school there and graduated from the University of Nebraska at Omaha with her BA.  But her learning never ended.  She’s continually teaching herself new skills.
