Meet the Artists

Hello friends, we are Twig + Berry Art Studio. We are Shannon and Josh Marino and we are so glad you’re here!

We marvel at the wonders of nature and have a deep appreciation of the physical materials that she provides. Whether it’s the rich swirling grain of a black walnut burl or the toothy grit of freshly fired clay. Exploring various art media is our passion.

Practicing our skills and sharing what we’ve learned is our calling. We are both teacher and student, always learning something new!

Get immersed in the processes, learn a thing or two, …and most importantly, have fun!

We look forward to exploring art with YOU!

Hi, I’m Shannon Marino

My education includes a B.A. in ceramic arts from Penn State University and a M.A. in art education from Chatham University. I worked in my own little pottery studio for 4 years, and have been teaching artistically for 25 years, including teaching elementary school art. My personal art practices include pottery, blacksmithing, painting, sculpture, graphic design, printmaking, stained glass and most recently, stained glass jewelry. I consider myself a lifelong learner, dreamer, artist and teacher.
