Our very first Photographer of the Month is LaJean Sigler. It’s always nice to meet a female photographer. It’s an honor to meet one with this much talent! Every time I look at one of her photographs, I’m astounded by the quality of her work! LaJean has got an even better personality, always willing to help others and share her wealth of information. And her modesty! When she reads this blog, she’ll probably fuss at how great we say she is. But it’s the truth! I’ve always been a fan of great things coming from small places. LaJean definitely fits that bill! Well enough of me rambling. Here’s a short bio of LaJean. Check out her work at The Art Depot in Many, LA and the Natchitoches Art Gallery. Her work is for sale there and she also works on commission.
“EVERYTHING STARTS WITH A VISION”
LaJean Sigler, a native of Sabine Parish, has lived on Toledo Bend Lake since the 1990s. She has three children, 7 grandchildren (5 grandsons and 2 granddaughters).
Her passion for photography has evolved into a work of ART, with a specialty in scenic landscapes, old homesteads, and anything antique or vintage. LaJean says, “I adore portraits and really like special events, including birthdays, music events, and social events. It’s my photography with “A Touch of Art”.
I am always learning as I go!” LaJean has had several online classes at Bossier Parish Community College and continues with online classes through the prestigious New York Institute of Photography.
LaJean has been an active member of The Depot Art Gallery in Many, Louisiana, since 2012, and has served as Vice-President (2013) and as President (2014). She joined both the Natchitoches Art Guild and the Cane River Photographic Society in 2014.
LaJean’s work recently appeared on the front cover of Prime Time Magazine’s Summer 2014 issue. She said, “I was thrilled to see my photo of a favorite place on the magazine cover.” The Natchitoches Art Guild is also thrilled to have LaJean as a member and to display her work in its Gallery.
Here’s some of her favorite work!
