Hello, I am Shannon Chappell, a custom fabricator based out of Calgary, Alberta. My artistic background was in photography. Although, over the past few years, I have moved away from the camera in favor of fabrication. I starting making props in order to have interesting things to photograph, only to realize, I preferred building rather than taking the picture. Since 2009 I have been developing and refining my prop and costume making skills. Always starting new and more complicated projects, to push and better myself.


​Some of the areas I work in are- digital and traditional photography, small electronics, computer modification, scene and set design, special effects make-up, Steampunk art, woodworking art, animatronics, interior design, conceptual art, fabrication, prop and costume design and the list is always growing!


Typically I work as a found object fabricator- I can see the potential in everything. Hence I have a large collection of raw materials from which to create from, and am able to modify the most common place things to suit my needs. This also means that no two works are alike. I pride myself on my trouble shooting skills, and no limits creative approach. All you have to do is just set me loose!


I am open to all related work opportunities, commissions, conceptions and collaborations. My life is about creation, I dedicate all my free time to this pursuit and I am always on the lookout for new opportunities. For inquires, comments or questions, please feel free to contact me via email on my contact page- and thank you for taking the time to look through my website.
