Biography

Shirley has been artistic from earliest childhood, painting and drawing, then later trying to take 'arty' photos with her Brownie camera. She became serious about photography in 1984 when she was given her own 'good' camera, a Pentax Super Program. She now has a Nikon D80, and various lenses, etc. She began teaching herself photography through reading and trial and error. Later, she took a course from New York Institute of Photography, graduating in 1991. Shirley taught herself how to use the computer and is now adept at manipulating and creating fine art from her photos.


Resumè

Shirley has won international awards, including two gold medals from Austrian Super Circuit (the world's largest photo salon), and a medal from the South Africa Super Circuit. She has had work exhibited nationwide, as well as in several other countries, and has been published in several photo magazines and calendars, and in the Best of Photography Annual, which is produced by Photographer's Forum Magazine.
