I come from a long line of creatives. My grandmother made clothes, baked cakes, crafted dolls, rugs and wall art. I spent a lot of my time as a child underneath the craft sale tables listening to the hustle of shoppers and the joy it brought to people when they found something that spoke to their heart. My mother, also very talented and creative, found her way to graphic design. Self taught and brilliant with people, she created jobs for herself and many others along her journey. My mother is a trailblazer and continues to inspire me. 

Artist, lover of color, and coffee fanatic

Shawna here! 

After 10 years at Badger Liquor, where I designed menus and event signage for wine & liquor vendors, I found myself itching for more creativity. I was designing in my free time - having the time of my life!! I began seriously contemplating leaving my 'forever' job (which was amazing) to start my own business. (Scary!!)

Fast forward to college where I graduated with a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree from UW-Eau Claire.  After finding my 'forever' job, I met my husband and we created a beautiful blended family of 6 + fur baby. We started our lives and currently live in beautiful Chippewa Falls, Wisconsin. 

art has always been my passion

Growing up, I spent all my time drawing and coloring

The biggest adventure you can take is living the life of your dreams.

I'll never forget the amazing support I had from family, friends and small business owners in the area. as a new business owner i embraced my art and trusted that if I followed my heart and passion, that I would be okay. 

Shawna Lou Creative, LLC started in the summer of 2017

My tagline is "All things creative" because I just love all things that are creative!! And I am always open to learning, creating and experiencing new adventures and skills.

I quickly realized that with the new freedom of owning my own business, that there were endless possibilities for me as an artist.

I attended a local meeting and joined the next day. It's been a whirlwind ever since! I have not only grown my business, I've become lifelong friends with women around the world and incredible leaders in our community. I'm forever grateful for the opportunities that have happened out of PDP. 

a world wide women's connection company

I would soon be introduced to Polka Dot Powerhouse

I look forward to working with many more people across the country and leaving this world a little more beautiful than when I entered. 

Creating pieces that touch the heart and a moment in time, fuel my soul. My passion lies in having a pencil or paintbrush in my hands, creating big or small pieces for both myself and for my clients.

Helping my clients bring their unique style and vision to life through art is my superpower.
