Stacy Pedri is a prolific photographer, creating magic with her first love which is capturing images in Nature and landscapes, gravitating to rustic treasures. One of Stacy’s mentors, Betty Sederquist, states, “Stacy is one of the hardest-working people I know, eager to learn about photography. Couple that work ethic with her amazing creative eye, and you have the ingredients for some fantastic images.” Stacy found photography through chronicling the lives of her two sons as they were growing up. After they were grown, she began taking classes with instructors who became mentors who helped define her passion. Her desire is to create a photograph that will entice her audience to understand and share the emotion she feels while capturing the image. She currently shows her work at, and is an active member of, Art on the Divide Cooperative Gallery in Georgetown. Her sons are now grown, and she loves to travel with her husband, spending time camping and searching for new landscapes, old treasures and hidden gems in Nature. Stacy has an impressive collection of numerous awards for her work. One notable recognition is that her work was selected to adorn one of the El Dorado Disposal trucks in a county-wide photography contest. Stacy’s goal is to continue to capture, create and share her inspired artistic journey through Photographic Art.
