Abstract photo art

Welcome to my world of color, textures, imagination and creativity, where photography provides access to out-of-the box seeing/thinking and unending possibilities.

You might find your ideas unfolding and leaning in one direction, guarded by a portion of yourself.

And most certainly, when you explore the same set (though different fronds from the first), from different viewpoints whole new perspectives open up.

Dear Sheila,
Your photos reveal your multi-dimensional awareness. Each breathtaking photo has a life of its own. Your stunning mental and visual perception combine to evoke deep sensation and meaning that could not be achieved from one modality alone. This merging of images and ideas uncover and stimulate new pathways in mind and heart.
Thank you for relentlessly challenging yourself to choose this wonderful use of your talents. Thanks for inspiring me to think and feel more acutely.
Hooray for you,
