About Theresa Cyrus   The Sun Does Shine

 Theresa was born in the Bahamas and raised in Trinidad and Tobago, she’s lived in the US for almost 30 years. Theresa stopped considering herself artistic after her 7th grade teacher said that she couldn’t draw. Over the years she steered clear of having a conversation about art, of which she felt ill-equipped. Increasingly though Theresa felt the need to express herself artistically and started taking pictures.

“To me, the rising and setting sun is an unfailing promise that no matter how dark life may seem at any given moment, it eventually gets brighter.”

She began taking pictures in earnest in 2016 while traveling around Europe. It was then she really began to appreciate the power of photographs to take others along with her on her adventures. Her photos are mainly of nature, but she takes pictures of anything that moves her and shares it hoping that it will make a difference for others.

About Stephen Carlson  Photo Bling

“I started my interest in photography in High School while in Tokyo, Japan where my parents were missionaries and continued my learning by taking every class in photography and video production in a community college in California. I didn’t reignite that passion until recently when I got involved in local amateur movie-making and I rediscovered my creative eye through the camera lens. Despite the training in studio lighting and big format cameras every one of the pictures displayed in this art show are taken on an iPhone 6s+. I describe myself as photographic artist and not a documentarist. I’ve tweaked the colors and added sky filters to create the ambiance that is in my minds eye.
