With a degree in graphic design from Arizona State University and a degree in sculpture from the California College of Arts and Crafts in Oakland California, Shawn Lovell has long wedded the two worlds of thoughtful and elegant design with the world of artistry and craft. Starting out as a metal fabricator and artist assistant she eventually was drawn to blacksmithing and set out to learn everything she could about the age-old craft.

In 1997 she established her metalworking studio taking on one of kind commissions. Driven by the love of learning and the desire to hone her craft she continues to fuse contemporary design with the age-old craft of blacksmithing creating truly one-of-a-kind work.
