“If it catches my eye, I shoot it,” she said.
Another is a close-up photo of a bison’s eye, which shows the reflection of a pickup truck; that photo was published in National Bison Magazine.
Her favorite subjects are anything to do with nature. She photographs people, too — but usually outdoors. One of her photos captures singer Jared Yates in an outdoors setting.
Other favorite subjects include her Chihuahua, Mr. Bojangles, and her two cats, as well as her grown children and grandchildren.
“Anyone can be a photographer,” she said. “Any photo is a good photo as long as you like what you shot. If anyone else likes it, that’s a bonus.”
Besides photography, Easley does paintings and artwork. She also puts together photo CDs with special music. She will have a price list on hand at the library so people may order prints or crafts.
Sherri Easley’s photos and Native American items will be on display at the Westville Public Library through April, and possibly longer. The library is open from 9:30 a.m. to 6 p.m. weekdays and 9:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. Saturdays.
Artists who want to display their work may call the library at 267-3170 for more information.
