Shannon Nicole Kringen  SEATTLE, WA
Friday July 15th my apartment was broken into after someone stole my landlords keys and used them to rob my space.  they took 5 cameras and one netbook laptop i had.  (LIST OF ITEMS STOLEN FROM ME: Canon Powershot G12, Canon DSLR T3I with tamron zoom lens, Canon Powershot SX10IS, Canon Powershot Canon SX50 HS, Netbook Laptop Asus EEE PC Netbook (2007) . with batteries and memory cards.)

***update august 3rd 2016:  thanks everyone for your support. i am raising my goal to $1,000.00 as i want to get a used lens for my slr camera: Pentax smc Pentax-DA 18-270mm f/3.5-6.3 ED SDM Lens which is $389.00 online right now.

***update july 29th)  my latest goal is to get this lens for my Pentax that was gifted to me:   Pentax K-Mount DA 18-270mm f3.5-6.3 ED SDM Interchangeable Lens. thank you so much everyone for your support.  i am amazed and grateful.***

i don 't really need 5 cameras so my goal would be to just replace one for now.    the camera i miss the most is my "Canon PowerShot SX50 HS" it did everything i need. video, still, macro close ups and super zooming up to 50X optical. it has the LCD flip screen i need for the best selfies and for doing video monologues.

so  i would love to raise funds to get a "nearly new"  Canon Powershot SX50HS.  they seem to run about $400 something plus tax.  i'd love to raise $500 to help me get an extra battery and some memory cards and the theives took all my memory cards and chargers along with my cameras.  i lost around $3500.00 worth of equipment i had accumulated over the last 10 years and sadly i did not have renters insurance.    thankfully my landlord is giving me credit on one month of rent to help me out since his insurance does not cover my property being stolen.  i am very grateful for any support i can receive.  if you prefer to just donate to me privately in another way email me and we can work something out!  thanks.  love, shannon
if you donate i can also send you a gift!  a print of one of my photos i take with this new camera you helped me buy!  i can sign and mail to you! 

thanks, love, shannon  "Goddess KRING"

thanks everyone who donated to my go fund me! i am open to more donations to anyone who wants to give...all will go towards my art projects. my latest is this: Goddess KRING radio: I, Shannon Kringen will be your host and will do improvisational monologues ranging from an audio diary to topics like music, art, spirituality, personal growth healing, travel, naturism/nudism, personal philosophy, word play, seriousness, sillyness, stories from my unusual life... spliced with experimental spoken word and music i create....I had a long running public access tv show by the same title and this is a new version of that sans visuals. (it was on the air each week from 1996-2011! 15 years straight! all original content....i'm sort of an introspective extrovert....introverted/extrovert.....(i may in the future invite creative guests on and interview or dialogue with them- or have them share their own audio expressions/ creative topics but i seem love being solo for now sharing into the mic in my own solitary way)

the overall message of my show is to "be yourself, no matter what they say" everyone is unique and has their own path....i love to amplify this and explore random ideas and synchronicities/syn-kring-nicity....

Bio:
Multi Media Artist Shannon Kringen grew up in San Diego California and Whidbey Island Washington. She is a self taught photographer with a background in Graphic Design. She has worked as a figure model in Seattle since 1992. She completed her BA degree in Arts and Literature from Antioch University in 2013. She sees her creative expression as a tool to connect with community and a way of increasing self awareness and tap into a deeper wisdom within.

Artist Statement:
I work with cameras, microphones, written words and paint improvisationally. I am very kinesthetic and use my whole body when I create.

In my photography, I fall in love with shape, texture and light while out wandering. I like to capture what is naturally there but in a way that abstracts it and allows the viewer to notice something new and different about ordinary physical reality. I carefully compose all my photos spontaneously as I am shooting moving the camera angle until I see what looks like a balanced, dynamic composition.

In my painting, I allow my hands to move intuitively on the canvas creating shapes and textures that feel right. I repeat patterns and choose colors from somewhere beyond my thinking mind. I am very inspired by the repeating patterns I see in nature. Plants and animals move me a great deal.

In my spoken word and musical creations I listen to words as they pop into my head and go into trance like states- playfully spinning words out as they come to me in a musical way....

I am taping into my unconscious and go into a dream like state when I create art.

Air Time: Thursdays 3-4pm Starting October 20th 2016 (tom petty's birthday!!!!)
