Shea O'Connor

Illustrator & Designer






Hey! I'm Shea. I'm an illustrator and graphic designer currently creating in Atlanta, Georgia. I have a BFA in Graphic Design from the University of Georgia and I've worked in the creative industry for over 10 years at animation studios, design firms, and now full-time for myself. From selling my art on Etsy to designing bespoke brands to illustrating children's books, I love bridging a vintage style with modern values. My designs are colorful, diverse and I fear no sparkle.



I've learned lots of industry secrets and design tidbits over the course of my creative journey, and I'm so excited to share them with you as I begin teaching!


I love making friends with fellow creatives, so pop over and say hello on Instagram. Feel free to tag me so I can see your projects on there and, of course, add 'em to the Class Projects section as well.


If you'd like some freebies and updates on all things Designed By Shea, you're welcome to join my newsletter. I'm so happy you're here and I can't wait to see the sparkly things you create!
