Hi, I'm Shannon Marone
ARTIST | HERBALIST | ART THERAPIST | HEALER | FOUNDER OF BROWNBEAR + OWL
I have been working in the field of art therapy and counseling for over ten years. I started my private practice in order to fulfill my dream of helping others find deeper connection and meaning in life through art-making and reconnection with the natural environment.
At a young age I found that art was a way I could express myself freely. It served as a way to communicate when words failed. I continue to create my own art as a way to stay connected with my soul self and to help guide me as I work with others.
I am a lover of animals and nature, feeling most at home and at peace when I am outdoors among wildlife. I am a Wild Woman Project Circle Leader and strive to help women reconnect with their ancient, divine, wild selves and to build a community of sisterhood. In my quest toward helping womxn, I have completed the DONA birth doula training and have assisted in the birthing process.
Over the past year, I have begun my study of Herbalism, learning about the powerful healing power of plants. I am now in my second year of study and am currently working towards my Flower Essence Practitioner Certification.
