Exploring Nature Photography by Sheila Newenham

I hope to connect people to nature by sharing my passion for wildlife and wild places. By bringing the individual, emotional, sentient side of our natural world into people’s homes, I can expand the 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 stay with you when you leave.

I feel most alive when I am out wandering.  Every chance encounter with a wild animal invigorates me.  Those precious moments when we both stop entirely and regard one another, then the acceptance in watching that sentient being go about the business of daily life without any further concern for me are gifts.  I love to venture off the beaten path, to marvel at things I’ve never seen, noticed or appreciated before, to learn about places through immersion and to breathe it all in.  And then my heart is full.

Join me, through my pictures and words, in my journeys near and far.  I hope that you are inspired to get out there, too.
