Professional writer/photographer Cheryl Dalsanders has woven a lifetime of passions into a unique and varied career. Her journey has taken her around the world many times, capturing the total essence of her unique perspective on cultures far removed from our own everyday lives. She began her career as a travel writer and photographer for leading newspapers and magazines across the country but is best known for her award-winning Cheryl Dalsanders’ Collection — a note card and fine art gift line sold in leading stores across the country for over 20 years.
Cheryl hosted her own television talk show and has toured the West Coast with her multi-media travelogues. Her children’s book, Best Friends, received a five-star review and was photographed and written entirely on location in South Africa, Zimbabwe and Botswana.
A native of the Midwest, Cheryl now resides in the Seattle, Washington, area where she credits the incredible beauty of the Pacific Northwest as ongoing inspiration for her writing and photography.
