About Shauna

Basics

Hello! I'm Shauna, my pronouns are she/her, and I'm the one behind That Queer Card Co.

I live in Vancouver, BC with my super cute French fiance and our two ridiculous cats. I love board games, drag queens and Disney villains, and my closet is almost entirely black and white stripes. I collect herbal tea and novelty tea infusers and rarely drink it, I am terrified of heights but obsessed with rollercoasters, and I am genuinely indifferent about cilantro.

  • Queer

    I use "queer" and "gay" pretty interchangeably, but "queer" feels like the most comfortable way to describe my identity. I grew up in a Mennonite family and came out when I was 20.

  • Femme

    I am a cisgendered woman and, baby gay phase aside, have always very much identified with "femme." Though I do love beanies, Vans, and my ridiculous lipstick collection in equal measures.

  • Creative

    I struggle to identify with any one art form over another. I love all the things - photography, drawing, painting, sculpting, and make-up artistry.

  • Type A

    I am by no means a free-spirited creative. I am super methodical in all areas of my life, perhaps to a fault. I have so much love for systems, workflows, automations, and routines.

My History with Art

Art has always been part of my life in some capacity. The Sharpie Ultra Fine was my first love and I quickly developed an appreciation for fine line cartoons and doodles. Eventually I discovered the Bullet Journal community and channeled my artistic efforts into several years of serious Bullet Journalling. In recent history, I have fallen in love with Procreate and the world of digital illustration.
