From "States of Grace: the Aviary"
Biography: Wendi Schneider is a fine art photographer, originally from Memphis, New Orleans and New York, now based in Denver. Her sensual photographs illuminate organic forms in nature and the delicate balance between the real and the imagined. Her images are inspired by a background in painting, art history and the lush beauty of the South. She began making hand-painted photographs in the early '80s and is now creating gilded vellum prints for her "States of Grace" series of Figura, Flora and Fauna. Exhibited and collected internationally, she is represented by A Gallery For Fine Photography.
