CHRISTIE SHINN is a self-taught graphic designer and illustrator based in Canada but inspired by Hawaii. With a bright, graphic style, Shinn documents daily life on the North Shore of Oahu through her work. Her art steers clear of the familiar postcard imagery and, instead, features smaller moments that are telling of the larger experience. Shinn's unique aesthetic comes from a varied collection of influences that include old skate graphics, DIY screen printing, and comic book art. With no formal training, Shinn attributes her artistic skills to a hereditary line of creatives, love of extra-curricular learning and a wonderful group of friends who have provided inspiration and opportunity.
