Gene Gracey is a San Francisco native who has had a calling toward outdoor, Nature and Wildlife, photography since childhood. That calling, coupled with an ongoing love for the outdoor world, has led her down a path of new discoveries and has ignited a passion to explore the great wonders of the colors and life that nature provides us.
A true appreciation for the treasures in her own backyard speaks to the volume of her works celebrating the photographic opportunities that surround her in the San Francisco Bay Area. Like any artist, however, she welcomes inspiration from every source. Her muse is the natural world itself, and so she travels, whenever possible, to explore and capture in vibrant images the endless beauty on the horizon or at her feet.
Her work has been seen on the cover of a local magazine produced quarterly, by the Vallejo Herald. She is also has displayed at the Art Exhibits at the Blackhawk Gallery, and participated in Exhibits through the Livermore Art Association and the Pleasanton Art League. She can be seen at many local Art Festivals in the Bay Area.
Through her photographs and gift items, she wants to share what she sees through her “Looking Glass” with those who have an appreciation for nature, but not always enough time to indulge. She has enjoyed learning to capture a new perspective of the natural magic that surrounds us and hopes others will find some joy while looking through …Nature’s Looking Glass.
