Sheila Metzner is one of those women other women would envy if she weren't so charismatic. She seems to have had it all: A career in commercial art, a happy marriage, five children, a second career as a fine-art photographer with a parallel track as a fashion photographer and still photographer on various films. Her shows in galleries and museums have drawn mostly positive reviews. And three books of her photographs have been published.
