Shirley was born and raised in Oregon. She is a "young"
grandmother who loves her family. Her great passion is photography.
She was always artistic: drawing and painting from an early
age,trying to get 'art' photos with her brownie camera. She became
serious about photography around 1984.
Shirley graduated from New York Institute of Photography in
November 1991. Her photographs have been published in several
magazines and calenders, and have won awards both nationally and
internationally. Beginning in 1988 and each year thereafter,her
photos have been included in THE BEST OF PHOTOGRAPHY ANNUAL, which
is published by PHOTOGRAPHERS FORUM magazine.
For the last three years she has had photos accepted for the
Austrian Super Circuit,the largest photo salon in the world. In 1999
she received medals both in Austria and South Africa.
Fantasy and futuristic,spacey things fascinate her. At the same
time she is an incurable romantic who loves flowers and the wild
natural settings. Her latest thrill is using the computer to bring
her imagination to life. Shirley enjoys creating art that is
pleasurable and uplifting and sometimes amusing.

Interview by "Zen Within
The Frame" Ken Brody Professional Photographer
Christopher Robinson Managing Editor
David Mendelsohn's work has a life of its own. It catches
your eye, grabs hold of your soul, and pulls you deep into its
framework, so that ultimately you feel as the image. You
become aware if the rain splattering off your back as you
strain to read the headlines on a taxi driver's newspaper. You
can smell the characteristic aroma of the burning cigar, held
perfectly poised in the wrinkled hand of a green-clad man with
a white mustache. You marvel at how much this man resembles
the stark white skull on the wall beside him. Or, perhaps, how
much they differ. No matter, certainly they belong together.
Well known for his highly graphic, award-winning commercial
photography, Mendelsohn did not start his professional career
behind a camera. " I came to photography through a rather
indirect path," he recalls. "I always had some interest in the
medium after my dad gave me his old Argus C3, around my 12th
birthday, I toyed with the camera and a makeshift dark room to
some degree, but it was simply another one of my interests."
