If you learned to forgive today, how would your life change tomorrow? The Path To Forgiveness is an inspirational journey of the heart to a place where one can discover the power of forgiveness, peace and hope.

Shawn McCann is an illustrator and Fine Artist currently residing in Otsego, Minnesota. An alumnus of the Minneapolis College of Art and Design (MCAD), with a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree in Illustration, Shawn continues to explore different facets within areas of medium, style, content, and creativity.

Shawn has been working in the areas of illustration and fine arts for over four years, and has been creating art since his first elementary art class a number of years ago.

In April 2004, Shawn was appointed to the MCAD Alumni Board of Directors.

Shawn is also a member of the Society of Children's Book Writers and Illustrators and has been accepted two years consecutively into the Society of Illustrators Los Angeles' annual online and original exhibitions. His work has also been showN in numerous other exhibitions throughout the country.

Illustrating childrens books is one of the great things I love about being an artist. Being able to create a rich environment of color and texture that engages kids is the driving force behind my work. For there is nothing better than opening up an entirely new world each and every time a child opens a book. Having attended The Minneapolis College of Art and Design, I was taught that the sky is the limit. Wherever your imagination will take you is where you need to be. Childrens books allow that very notion and I wouldn’t have it any other way!




  1. Shawn is wonderful! Can't wait to see his next books...

  2. Shawn is such an awesome artist. I first met him when he offered to lead a website-building workshop with the SCBWI a few years ago, and we've been friends ever since. A gentleman and a professional, he's a great fellow to know and a wonderful addition to this site!
