Born and raised in Africa, Shaun travelled to Australia in 2003 to play rugby. He met his future wife and decided to call this beautiful place home.
He is an active serving defence member and finds painting an essential tool for maintaining a good headspace. He has been painting for around eight years and is self-taught.
His winning illustration in TZH is dedicated to firefighters who risk their lives in the service of others. "Real heroes!" - Shaun Connolly.
