                                            Shannon Lee Ross
                                            Lighting Designer

              hannon       began      her
              professional career as a
              designer while in high
              school. Michael Jackson,
              her uncle and owner of
              Hinkley’s Lighting Factory,
knew Shannon was an aspiring artist.
He asked her if she would help him with
a design project and she agreed to give
it a try. The client loved her designs
and Hinkley’s got the business!
   She continued to work part-time
at Hinkley’s and upon high school
graduation began course work in
graphic design and art history. College
was interesting but not very challenging.
When Uncle Mike asked her if she
could design full time for Hinkley’s
she jumped at the opportunity. After
all, the only way to learn how to design
light fixtures is Experience 101.
   That was seven years ago and she has
been growing and improving Hinkley’s

                                     unique custom lighting ever since. Her designs can be seen in some of
                                     the Valley’s most prestigious homes, restaurants, hotels and country
                                     clubs. The skills Shannon has honed over the years are exemplified in
                                     a portfolio of hundreds of designs.
                                         Not every fixture design will start from scratch. Hinkley’s carries
                                     the products of over four hundred lighting manufacturers. Some
                                     clients may like a particular feature of an existing light fixture, but
                                     they don’t like the color or want to add crystal. This is an easy fix and
                                     an inexpensive way to get a one-of-a-kind fixture. Shannon can assist
                                     with these fixture upgrades or she will take design elements of several
                                     fixtures a client enjoys to come up with a final design that combines all
                                     of their favorite elements. Michael Jackson’s business philosophy is
                                     to work with the customer until they are completely happy with their
                                     lighting. A Hinkley’s client will rarely hear the word “no.”
   When working with clients, Shannon will
typically start sketches to show them her ideas for
the perfect fixture. Once everyone is on the same
page the ideas start to flow. Upon client approval,
fully specified production drawings are completed and
passed on to Hinkley’s artisans. This design process
normally takes 2-3 weeks.
   Production time can vary, and is often dictated by
the complexity of the fixture and materials used. When
asked if there is a lot of back-and-forth consultation on the
drawings with the client, she said, “No, not really. They
usually approve them the first time.” This is remarkable
and pays tribute to Shannon’s versatile talents. She is
always available to Hinkley’s craftsmen should they require
explanations of shape, finish or final assembly to fully achieve
her design concept.
   With the responsibility of designing and consulting on all of
Hinkley’s custom projects, Shannon can get a little swamped.
Jessica Jackson is Shannon’s full-time project assistant. Jessica is
instrumental in keeping Shannon organized and assists her in many
ways. At job sites Jessica takes copious notes such as dimensions,
fixture locations and relevant client comments. It is Jessica’s job
to maintain the details of her projects. This allows Shannon to
focus on the client’s lighting ideas and vision of the desired
ambiance for their home.
   Shannon finds the challenge of designing a fixture that
has never been seen before very exciting. She especially
enjoys working with a group of accomplished
artisans to bring her designs to life.

A 2006 First Place ASID award
winner, this remodeled kitchen

lighting are compelling design
tools to manipulate space and
visual perception.”
