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.

David Mendelsohn

Interview by "Zen Within The Frame" Ken Brody Professional Photographer
Christopher Robinson Managing Editor www.outdoorphotographer.com www.pcphotomag.com

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."
