We’re delighted to welcome Shirley Drevich as a new Columnist to theappwhisperer.com. We previously interviewed Shirley in our A Day In The Life Series of interviews, if you missed that, please go here. Shirley Drevich received a BFA from Tulane University in New Orleans.  She majored in Ceramics and Photography.  She went on to do post graduate work for a year at Boston University in Jewelry, established herself there as a jewelry artist and showed her work at contemporary Craft Shows, Art Fairs, museum shops and contemporary craft galleries.  She has come full circle and has renewed her passion for photography through the iPhone.  She is one of the many talented iPhone photographers who is forefront in this young and rapidly evolving field.  Her work has been included in many iPhoneography exhibitions. She has been teaching iPhoneography at Fairchild Tropical Botanic Garden in Miami since 2011.

Fairchild Tropical Botanic Garden is a great source of inspiration for Shirley and she spends much time there with her iPhone in hand capturing its beauty from the plethora of flowers, butterflies, art, orchids and more.  Her monthly column, entitled ‘iFoto Fairchild’ will be inspired by that beauty with a different theme each month.

We recently welcomed Richard Gray, Misho Baranovic, Dan Marcolina, Keith Tharp, David Hayes, Teri Lou Dantzler, Richard Koci Hernandez, Rudy Vogel, Kevin Kuster, Laura Peischl, Dilshad Corleone, Mel Harrison, Star Rush, Catherine Restivo, JQ Gaines, Cindy Patrick, Roger Guetta, Janine Graf, Sarah Jarrett, Jennifer Bracewell and Benamon Tame as Columnists to theappwhisperer and we will have a few more announcements to make very soon.

We are growing at a phenomenal rate and trying to include as much unique content and variety from the mobile photography world as our readers can possibly digest, you really don’t need to go anywhere else!

Please join us in welcoming Shirley to theappwhisperer family, welcome Shirley…

Joanne Carter, creator of the world’s most popular mobile photography and art website— TheAppWhisperer.com— TheAppWhisperer platform has been a pivotal cyberspace for mobile artists of all abilities to learn about, to explore, to celebrate and to share mobile artworks. Joanne’s compassion, inclusivity, and humility are hallmarks in all that she does, and is particularly evident in the platform she has built. In her words, “We all have the potential to remove ourselves from the centre of any circle and to expand a sphere of compassion outward; to include everyone interested in mobile art, ensuring every artist is within reach”, she has said.
Promotion of mobile artists and the art form as a primary medium in today’s art world, has become her life’s focus. She has presented lectures bolstering mobile artists and their art from as far away as the Museum of Art in Seoul, South Korea to closer to her home in the UK at Focus on Imaging. Her experience as a jurist for mobile art competitions includes: Portugal, Canada, US, S Korea, UK and Italy.

Pioneering the world’s first mobile art online gallery - TheAppWhispererPrintSales.com has extended her reach even further, shipping from London, UK to clients in the US, Europe and The Far East to a global group of collectors looking for exclusive art to hang in their homes and offices. The online gallery specialises in prints for discerning collectors of unique, previously unseen signed limited edition art.
Her journey towards becoming The App Whisperer, includes (but is not limited to) working for a paparazzi photo agency for several years and as a deputy editor for a photo print magazine. Her own freelance photographic journalistic work is also widely acclaimed. She has been published extensively both within the UK and the US in national and international titles.

Her professional photography has also been widely exhibited throughout Europe, including Italy, Portugal and the UK.
