Eva has a background in painting, textiles, fashion design and photography; the latter having taken over her main artistic expression with the influence of painting and other forms of art remaining visible in her work.

Having grown up in Europe, she brings a uniquely European sensibility to her portrayal of Australian Life.
A resident of Sydney for over a decade now, this sense of observing with a newcomer’s eye hasn’t left her and still informs her close study of its many nuances and details.

Her most recent exhibitions featured images of surfers and beach goers moving on the beach as mirrored in the wet sand.
The result is a collection of photographs revealing a deep engagement with the sculptural properties of the waves, the texture and layering of the sand, the atmospheric effects produced by shifting light and the capacity of the foreshore to act as a constantly changing canvas.
Mammoth Lakes and the other half at the beaches in Malibu, her connection with the outdoors is apparent in her imagery. Her casual easy way with people, a natural connection with beau.
Mammoth Lakes and the other half at the beaches in Malibu, her connection with the outdoors is apparent in her imagery. Her casual easy way with people, a natural connection with beauty in the world and around her, and her high level of professionalism translate to stunning, timeless images.

If she’s not taking pictures, Cheyenne can be found hiking her dog in the hills of Topanga, trying to tackle her grandmas recipes in the kitchen, or jumping out of windows (seriously). Cheyenne was raised in a family of stunt people, and much like the circus, she learned the family craft at a young age. Her first stunt was at the age of 8yrs old and she is still hitting the ground at 33. Cheyenne helped pay her way through photography school doubling such actresses as Katherine Heigl and Rebecca Romijn and says she will never give it up, although pictures are her passion. “Stunts have kept me active, involved with the family business, and introduced me to some amazing people. It keeps me in shape, and honestly has allowed me to shoot a lot of jobs that most clients wouldn’t typically trust a woman with. When the job involves anything on the snow, in the water, or hanging out of helicopters, I feel completely confident that I can get it done.”
