Sharon Prislipsky, APSA, PPSA·

Sharon has had a lifelong interest in photography and art. Her first images as a child were captured with a Brownie Starflash camera which she used throughout her school years. She graduated from the University of Pittsburgh with a Liberal Arts Degree taking every art course she could fit into her program of studies. After earning a Master's Degree in Education she pursued a career as a school administrator, where she found she could use photography for staff training purposes and for producing interesting newsletters for the community and for families of her students.

Upon retirement Sharon began to pursue photography in earnest by focusing on landscapes features of the natural environment, including the lines, shapes, colors and textures that make our world beautiful. As time went on she expanded her repertoire to include subjects such as wildlife, architectural details, abandoned buildings, vintage vehicles, and on occasion, portraits in natural light.
