    Very impressive. Hope you don’t mind one minor piece of advice which I was given, start with the newest at the top, not the oldest. I did this with some photographs and it worked much better, and is the usual practice with a CV. You have a great future ahead Shannon!

    • Shannon Thompson February 16, 2013 at 12:25 pm #

      Great advice! I’ll look into changing that 😀
      ~SAT

    • Shannon Thompson February 16, 2013 at 12:32 pm #

      Changed it 😀
      Thank you for your helpful suggestion.

      • Tim Diggles February 17, 2013 at 7:52 am #

        Glad to help! You have given me an idea to list my published works, but yours is far more impressive. I do enjoy reading about the course you are on. I did Fine Art 40 years ago and what you talk about is very useful.

      • Shannon Thompson February 17, 2013 at 1:20 pm #

        I’d love to read about how you came to where you are today. I’m very intrigued by paths.
        ~SAT
        P.S Thank you for the compliments :]

    Totally understand! I will be there – I have a booth in the Children’s Section. It’s going to be fun and crazy at the same time. I will post updates about it after!
