A (he)arty welcome.
My name is Sheona (pronounced [sh ee OH n ah] ), I’m an artist photographer with a passion for monochrome imagery.
Black & White art makes me happy.
I’m a self-taught (well life-taught) image maker. I studied business in college, worked a few gigs in marketing & real-estate before landing in the middle of the elite equestrian world grooming and riding for the best of the best (yes, every little girl’s dream).
After graduating, life, love and a strong sense of adventure swept me off into a world of horses, travel, art, flying, motherhood and ultimately photography.
Drawing made it’s way into my life, unplanned, in my carefree twenties * photography, a tad later, in my forties.
*Little did I know I would have such an amazing art career. Through a strong passion and commitment to my art came hundreds of private commissioned portraits, international solo and group exhibitions, publications, multiple awards … even a television appearance.
What I do
I live with the firm belief that everyone deserves an amazing image. I create unique and bespoke images of the people we love with the soul purpose of immortalising their individual magic.
My Core beliefs
Keep it real. Everyone deserves an amazing portrait
Quality over quantity. Less is more and so much better
Keep it simple. Monochrome… always
Make it better. Never stop learning, pushing boundaries: there’s always room for improvement
Never stop growing. Challenge yourself…daily
Authenticity has always been and will always be at the heart of everything I accomplish, everything I visualise.
Every single image that leaves my studio is created with heaps of love, deep insight and real appreciation.
