NEW YORK, NY--(Marketwired - Nov 2, 2015) - Kay Lamb Shannon, always an artistic, creative, talented artist decided to take the next step and show her work professionally with great success. Kay Lamb Shannon is the owner and professional painter of Strokes of Perfection.

Kay Lamb Shannon graduated from Sam Houston State University with a Bachelor's Degree in Art.

After spending 15 years at home raising a family and working on her art when time permitted, Kay was faced with being the sole supporter of her home and family. Fine-tuning her sewing and art skills over the years, she needed to find a way to turn her talent and love of the arts into an income-earning business.

Determined and a bit apprehensive, Kay began displaying her artwork in various venues and at several art shows. At one of these shows in Dallas, it happened that a gentleman took notice of her exquisite work. This man purchased not one, but two of her paintings, and her dream began to become reality.

Kay's talent was quickly becoming recognized by individuals and corporate representatives alike. Soon after the first sale in Dallas, Kay Lamb Shannon received a call from Home Interiors, a large home decorating corporation, wishing to purchase her work. Home Interiors continued to carry Kay's prints for many years in order to meet the demands of their clients for her work. Scafa Tornabene, a large print publishing company in New York, and Bentley House in California also distribute her work nationally.

Kay Lamb Shannon's most current endeavor is creating paintings to be used by jigsaw puzzle companies, Bits and Pieces and SunsOut. Heaven and Earth Design, an international cross stitch company also distributes her work all over the world. Working in oils, Kay's canvases beautifully capture the detailed realism in her subjects of Nostalgic Paintings, Wildlife, Victorian Scenes, Still Life's and Homestead Scenes.

With more than 50 years of painting experience, Kay has no intention of slowing down or retiring. Seventy-five years young, she continues to create and sell her artwork while leading a very active social life.

Kay was awarded the 2014 Woman of the Year Award by the National Association of Professional Women, the largest networking organization of professional women with over 300 local chapters providing a networking community of over 600,000 members.

Kay Lamb Shannon is a member of Waco's Community Artist and Student Association. She also volunteers as the Social Chairperson for the Sunday School Department of her church and serves on the church Outreach and Ministry Program.

When Kay Lamb Shannon is able to eke out some leisure time she enjoys spending it with her family and grandchildren, watching movies, reading and walking.
