BIOGRAPHY

Based in Vancouver, British Columbia, Shira has spent most of her life immersed in the fine arts.

Shira left her style and textile career to become a caregiver after her mother was diagnosed with cancer. When her mother passed, Shira became a parent herself and recognized the need to reclaim her visual voice and returned to her camera. The series “Reflect, Transform, Become” documents the transformative, complex experience of being a motherless mother, and earned her an Honorable Mention in the 2016 International Photography Awards.

Shira’s most recent body of work entitled “Good Grief” is an eight-part series of landscape portraits that serve as a visual dissertation of her movements through loss.

Shira’s work has been exhibited in several brick and mortar galleries in Vancouver, Seattle, Rome, and Athens. She is a member of Carfac and the all-female artist collective, Thrive Art Studios.

 

A few words

I seek to isolate images of stillness and beauty from complicated and painful moments.

My art is alert to the discomfort we all face in our daily lives, but I want to turn pain and angst on its side to discover the beauty that accompanies our struggles.

I hope harness what I see through my lens and give back to non-profits like Habitat for Humanity.
