Colleen Shanhun 
Colleen is our fantastic Business Administration Manager, an integral part of our team and the first point of contact when you call Houndstooth Studio. As well as managing a myriad of administration tasks, Colleen handles client enquiries, bookings, gift vouchers, and all phone calls. You’ll also see her at our fundraising events for animal charities and in our Houndstooth Studio marquee at various community pet events.

Colleen joined the Houndstooth Studio team in 2013, but Colleen and Alex have been colleagues and friends for more than 30 years.  She is a dog Mum to Digby the Tenterfield Terrier adopted from the Dogs Refuge Home of WA.

Alex’s heart dog Marshmallow is always by her side when she works in the office, editing images and placing orders. She was adopted from No Pup Cleft Behind in 2020 and has overcome many health issues in her life. She is adored by all who meet her and is doted on by Alex. Dogs rule and special needs dogs rule even more!
