Shawn does amazing work, with metal and my girls! Thanks for everything Shawn. Merry Christmas!

Both Shirley & I love the beautiful 3D creation of the Black Hills you made for our great room in our mountain lodge. It captures all the beauty of the Hills that drew us here for retirement. The sky, clouds, sunrise, mountain splendor, rocks, water, trees, deer & eagle make such a great impression that seems dreamlike. We love the rich color hues of the sunrise, the patina and grinding marks on the mountains that give such depth. We are so delighted to be able to enjoy this beautiful art everyday that reminds of God’s spectacular creation. Thank you Shawn ever so much.

PS – our adult children arrive tomorrow and then we will reflect on a name together.


We love the pond scene – thank you so much!   Let us know if you’d like a different view.  All the best for the new year – Daryl & Frances

We hadn’t forgotten to send a picture of your beautiful creation in our home. We wanted to live with it a while. I hope we don’t offend your artistic vision, but we moved the stream down lower. We placed the stream in the original location for a week or 10 days, and it just seemed to get lost in the background on our large, pine wall.

As we told you, we looked for nearly two years for the right piece of art to place above the piano… and we are so grateful that you created it. We love it! We look forward to seeing you around the Hills.”

Peace & Joy,
John & Joni Osnes
P.S. Your website is excellent. We sent the link to our daughter who is an interior designer at an architectural firm in Mankota, MN.

“Thank You! We are so pleased with your beautiful creation.”


“Hi Shawn,

I have attached a couple of photos of the art piece, “Tranquil Surrounding” installed on the wall of my Great Room. Thank you for the terrific job of repainting the 2 horses to look like my horses. The piece is beautiful on my western wall, and it is so interesting to watch the changes throughout the day as the sunlight moves across it from the eastern and southern windows.

Thank you, and have a Merry Christmas!”

Your art work came out just beautiful!  It fits really well in the space and the colors change a bit with the different light during the day.

I hope these pictures give you an idea of the setting.  If you would like any more shots please let me know.”

“Hi Shawn,

We have finally hung the art we purchased from you in Albuquerque. Here are a few pics. Please feel free to post to your website. Max (our dog) thinks he’s supposed to be in every picture.

We really love this piece, it’s the perfect transition between the outdoor kitchen and living area.”

Warm regards,


“Hi Shawn,

Just want to let you know that we received the rest of the artwork and hung it up this weekend in the entry niche in our home (attached pic).    My husband and I love it!  We’ve been looking for the right artwork for this spot  since we moved in 4 years ago, and your artwork is perfect for this spot.”

Thank You!

“Hi there.  Mike Moore here.  Finally got to SD and got this up.  Could not be more pleased!  The elec plate is going away today.  Thanks for
everything, you’ll be hearing from us again.”


“Hi Shawn,

The art work has been up for about a month now and we real enjoy looking at it.  We were going to put stone behind it at first but decided to see how it looked without the stone,  We still may add stone to outline the art or we may paint something on the border.

Still a work in progress and will let you know if we do anything more to enhance the piece.

We love the details of the pieces and the coloring especially on the cactus.”

Warm Regards,
Tom Maiello

Some more testimonials of our work


Decor by ShawnDecor by Shawn


We hung your aspen scene in our kitchen/dinette last Saturday, Dec. 7. It fits in the space so nicely and is as lovely as I expected. We greatly appreciate all the effort you made to provide us with the details of the position that each piece needed to be in. Friends stopped by last night and noted that we had something new on the wall and were quick to recognize the beauty and quality of your craftsmanship. This will be a special memento of special time that we spent with my sister and her husband.”

Thank you,
Betty Galey

“UPDATE: Since Christmas day has passed, we now have time to make the pictures of your aspen scene on my kitchen wall that you requested.  Our children were here for Christmas day and immediately noticed something different on the wall (your scene had replaced the cuckoo clock) and they admired your work and thought it was a nice change.  I hope you had an enjoyable Christmas season – you probably had a white Christmas – ours was a bright, bright, bright sun shinny day.  I think we have established a long-distance friendship.  I wish you a happy, healthy 2014 and that it will be a blessing. “

Best Regards,
Betty Galey


“Absolutely Perfect!

Thank you!”


“Dear Shawn,

He’s wonderful!!  Our dragon arrived safely and we are excited about getting him “settled” into his home in the rock water feature.  You did a fantastic job – he is powerful and yet refined, beautiful and wonderfully expressive, and a very dramatic sculpture.  Thank you for doing such great work.  As personable are he appears, we feel he needs a name, and we are working on it.  When we have him installed and properly illuminated, we will send you a picture.  Thanks again.”

“I finally have some pictures of the artwork you made for us. We really are enjoying it and have had many compliments. Had to install some accent lighting and added a sofa table to complete the wall. Thank You so much . . We hope to have more pieces of your work throughout our house.”

“Gettin’ lots of good compliments on it from folks visiting the studio!”

“Hi Shawn: We finally got time to hang the wall art you created and absolutely love it!!  Thank you so much for crafting such a beautiful and unique piece of art for us.”

~Ed and Melodie Comer


“OMG this is the best piece ever. We LOVE it!!!! Could be the best piece we have ever seen you do. It’s up and we are so excited. Max is up too and you really “got” him . Tried to take a picture to send but the light was wrong. Need to do it in daylight.”

~ Judy and Steve



I wanted to let you know that I’m thrilled with how the sculpture turned out.  It will fit perfectly in the spot I had imagined (at the end of a hallway).  However, it’s so beautiful I find myself looking around the house to see if there’s someplace in the main living area where I could hang it.Thank you again!”

“Dear Shawn,

Thank you so much for my lovely decor. It came on Wednesday and it’s just perfect, definitely worth waiting for. My Dad is going to help me put it on my living room wall today.I will send you a picture when it’s all up and finished.
Thank you again for your lovely work.”
