After a lifetime of thinking she couldn't draw her way out
of a paper bag (thanks to some unfortunate input by a nasty art
teacher in middle school), Shira has finally let her wonderful
husband convince her that maybe her doodles do deserve to see
the light of day--or at least the light of your computer monitor!
Shira first started learning Middle Eastern dance in 1981.
Dance has been her inspiration, her avenue to making friends
in a new community after relocating, and her escape from her
"day job" of being a professional Silicon Valley computer
