Hello my name is Shauna Ehninger welcome to my website. I am married to a multi-talented artist named Andrew whom I adore. We live amongst the cottonwoods of Salt Lake City, Utah with our Siam-Tabs cat Lucy.
Design has always been a natural part of who I am and how I view the world. It bleeds over into every aspect of my life whether it is fashion or simply choosing the most visually appealing packaging at the grocery store. So I decided to start this website as a creative outlet free from the tyranny of client feedback and overdone art direction. It is meant to chronicle my experiences through photographs and is my way of collecting the moments.
I grew up in the suburbs of Salt Lake and ironically attended a private Christian school for much of my adolescence. I believed Jesus was going to save the world until sometime around 22 when I decided Marx was right when he said religion was opium for the masses. I now consider myself to be an evangelical escapee.
College ended up taking me over a decade to complete as I started at the University of Utah and ended up taking an indefinite break to focus on my career. But I was finally able to earn my BA in Interactive Design & Game Development from Savannah College of Art and Design in 2015.
Currently, I work as a Front-end Coder at Adobe and occasionally freelance a bit on the side. My desire is to make the world a more beautiful place through my designs and still be able to pay the bills with that idealism.
Mental illness is part of everyday for me as I suffer from anxiety and depression. I share my experiences so people will understand it is illness rather than a weakness with a social stigma. And while I’ve had my share breakdowns along the way I see a therapist regularly and will need medication indefinitely – all of which have greatly improved my quality of life.
I am a lover of cats, film connoisseur, fashion addict and almost artist.
