Shannon Toth

International children's & lifestyle illustrator. Toronto

Shannon Toth
Based near the vibrant city of Toronto, in Canada, Shannon Toth is an award-winning children’s illustrator with an elegant yet fun style. Besides using her talent for drawing, she loves to travel and is a fan of horror films and old movies. Since the birth of her daughter, she’s taken up sewing alongside her illustration work and has come up with a range of stuffed creatures, which she calls Shannimals. Two of her favourite fellow artists are oil painter Michael Hussar and ink illustrator Laura Laine.

Training

Shannon trained at the Sheridan Institute of Technology in Oakville, Ontario, on the college’s prestigious Interpretive Illustration programme.

Approach

First Shannon likes to contemplate the subject for a while before diving into an illustration brief. The main media she likes to use is coloured inks, though she does paint in oils for some commissions. She enjoys the challenges of both media – the inks are unchanging and unforgiving, whereas oils offer all kinds of possibilities.

Style

Shannon’s style is fun, whimsical, feminine, and sometimes just a little bit twisted. She works mainly in fine lines, creating elaborately detailed figures which often have elongated limbs. She uses a mixture of dark and bright colours.
