Sheldon Strober


The imagery of my visual expression as well as my creating process have gone through striking changes over time. Each direction of expression has evolved in response to certain personal and societal events. Each succeeding body of work embraces new subject matter, levels of abstraction, and elements of style that are appropriate to an ever changing vision. Their common thread is that of being inspired by or based on some aspect of nature no matter how personalized and far removed from the source.
