About Sheila

Exploring Nature Photography


Artist Statement:

Sheila Newenham created Exploring Nature Photography to connect people to nature by sharing her passion for wildlife and wild places. By bringing the individual, emotional and sentient side of our natural world into people's homes, she hopes to expand their appreciation and experience of the wild.  "I want my art to show you something you’ve never seen before or to make you think about something in a new way and for it to stay with you when you leave."

Her images have earned local and international honors, are featured on the new Wildlife Illinois and Outdoor Illinois websites, and are found in both public and private collections.

New images are posted daily on Sheila’s Exploring Nature Photography pages on Instagram and Facebook.

Her website, www.exploringnaturephotos.com, hosts her curated image collection and provides current information about exhibits and sales.
