The Hawthorn Tree is featuring local artist John Sheffield for the First Friday Artwalk on April 5th and throughout April!

Photographer John Sheffield is returning in April as our featured artist of the month.  John and his wife, Heidi, moved here in August of 2022 to make Cheyenne their retirement home. In his retirement, John has been able to focus more on his photography and writing.  With no formal training in photography, several years ago he took up kayaking and said he bought a $75 digital camera “on a whim.” Since then, he has acquired two more feature-rich Nikon cameras with a variety of lenses, continuing to find peace in both the outdoors and photography.

John’s main interest is in nature photography, but over the years he has branched out into taking photos of people, architecture, street scenes, festivals, real estate, digital advertising, and also has several onstage concert shots in his portfolio. He sees great beauty in what many may describe as everyday scenes &  people.
We will also have some of John’s photography books and notecards for sale at The Hawthorn Tree.
