Jeanie Hooper is a talented photographer and multi-media artist. These are some of her amazing photographs and collages.
Born in the Florida wilderness as it was in the day, I spent my early childhood exploring the lush forests and ponds surrounding my grandparents orange grove and plant nursery. Days were spent high up in a live oak tree observing wildlife and birds around and below me. I developed an early love of drawing and painting in response to what I observed in nature. In high school art was my passion, I won a small contest and the prize was a week internship at a large department store art department. This fueled my passion for fashion design and I attended a commercial art school after graduation to pursue this career. I was always a lover of cool clothes and especially elaborate shoes. I worked in the commercial art field for a number of years.

“I am endlessly inspired by what we generally think of as everyday and commonplace.” says Shirley. “Whether it be a gorgeous sunset, a beautiful old city, children playing, a quiet garden, street musicians entertaining the public and each other, I love it and can't resist trying to capture it in a painting.” And capture it she does with quiet competence and grace in her brush and pastel strokes that transport the viewer to these places and moments of beauty.
