With experience in photography, video production, script writing and instructional design, Sheila Hughes is the epitome of a creative genius—exactly what you’d expect when you cross Indiana Jones with a rocket scientist. Born in Albuquerque, NM, her mother was an artist and archeologist and her father was a structural engineer for Sandia nuclear research. As a child, Sheila enjoyed fishing, camping and exploring. This early exposure to adventure was the launching pad for a life-long passion of travel and discovery. Sheila fell in love with photography in high school, dreaming of traveling the world taking photographs for National Geographic. While much of her professional career followed in her father’s footsteps, Sheila remains wild at her core. In her spare time, she creates quilts, art journals and watercolors and travels the world taking photographs. Her newest endeavor is Ruby Slippers Clique: an Internet platform to help others discover and celebrate their creative genius.
