I am Suzanne, also known as 'Siobhan'. 'Siobhan' was chosen as my artistic name to pay tribute to my Irish heritage. I am happily married to my high school sweetheart, David, and have three children remaining at home. We are South Carolina natives now living on the Texas Gulf Coast.
I have had a passion for photography since I was a little girl, following my parents around the house and clicking my pretend camera every time I caught them kissing. The passion was further kindled when I saw an image come to life for the first time on the 'magic paper' in the dark room at the University of South Carolina 26 years ago.
Six years ago, I decided to take my love of photography more seriously and established McClendon Photography. I am primarily a nature photographer. Coming back from a much too close brush with death during the summer of 2010, I had an awakening of sorts. My vision changed (both literally and figuratively). I have come to love abstract art and other forms of digital painting. Through digital painting, I am able to freely express myself, making my heart even more apparent than I have been able to achieve with my photography.
The next adventure will involve traditional painting, starting with watercolors. I can't wait to see where this path takes me!
Thank you and I hope that you enjoy your visit. :)
