Lawrencian, mom, artist and graphic designer. . . not necessarily in that order.

Photography bio: 
Local artist, Lawrence resident and a University of Kansas employee, Shala Stevenson brings 25 years of expertise in graphic design to her new love of photography. She was a multi-media and watercolor artist for many years, but when her younger brother, Alan, passed away suddenly in 2010, Shala inherited his professional camera equipment and leaned on his influence to create inspirational photos of the Lawrence, Kansas area. Paired with words set in light typography, her digitally-enhanced images evoke a connection with everyday objects.
