Shona’s singular style and creative attention to detail began with her childhood on the North Dakota prairie, and in 1996 morphed into Shona Dockter Decorative Arts. Her numerous specialty techniques include custom glazed and textured finishes, decorative plaster work, stenciling, murals, and painted furniture and floors. Shona’s custom finishes are influenced by time spent in her art studio, where she focuses on mixed media collage, book arts, painting and drawing.
Shona’s artwork can be seen nationally and throughout the Twin Cities area, and is often commissioned through leading interior designers for residential clients. Her commercial work is showcased in restaurants, retail spaces and several public restoration projects for the state of Minnesota. Shona’s work has also been featured in various Twin Cities design magazines, as well as Residential Architect, Modello By Design, and 3M corporate instructional videos.
Shona wears two hats at 5th & Malcolm: In her production manager role, she organizes inventory, shipping, ordering and other essential processes; but she’ll also be leveraging her rich experience in the decorative arts to develop new wallcovering designs for the 5th & Malcolm collection.
