    Claire Vimala Anderson   is a nature and landscape photographer from western Pennsylvania, Tucson, AZ, and most recently, Greenville, SC. Her artistic influences are Georgia O’Keeffe and Ansel Adams. The painter, for her declaration of ‘why paint the whole thing when part will do.’ And the photographer for using his craft to preserve the landscapes of his time.

The rest is derivative, for where would any of us be without her.” Contact information: clairevimala5678@yahoo.com 724.421.7478 VISIT CLAIRE-VIMALA ON FACEBOOK * * * * * * * * *
