Noreen O’Brien is a passionate photographer and artist. Whether spot toning at the Light Gallery in New York, photogravure printing in Santa Fe, or teaching photography to children in Nicaragua, she continually expands her creative vision with workshops, travel, and adventure. Her images represent an intimate look into the natural world, and through fine-art prints, mixed-media, encaustic, and resin, she shares the beauty of what she calls "the magical world of outside.” Noreen is a longtime participant at Santa Fe Photographic Workshops and a recipient of its Director’s Choice Award.
