Fantasy artist brings vivid imagination to the mundane world

Shauna Aura Knight is an artist and author who brings the realm of myth and magic into the workaday world, using vivid colors, interesting textures and dazzling charms to convey the story of the hero’s journey.

Once upon a time, she was a student of fine art at the University of Minnesota Twin Cities. Today she continues creating fantasy art from her home in Madison, Wisconsin. Her hand-painted, mixed-media, textured wall art is richly crafted with timeless appeal, guiding the onlooker through a tour between the worlds. Likewise her jewelry offers the same vibrance, symbolism and inspiration.

To date, Knight has authored 11 nonfiction and paranormal romance books, including the Path of a Seeker: Pilgrimages, Passages, and Personal Transformations; Dreamwork for the Initiate’s Path; and A Winter Knight’s Vigil; and she has contributed to the Pagan Leadership Anthology; Pagan Consent Culture; and Bringing Race to the Table: Exploring Racism in the Pagan Community.

A practicing ritualist, event organizer, and spiritual seeker, Knight travels nationally offering intensive education in the transformative arts of ritual, community leadership, and personal growth. She is passionate about creating experiences, spaces, and opportunities to awaken mythic imagination.
