Elephant Trainer at the Tulsa Zoo

Tulsa Zoo
Liese Henley, Elephant Trainer

This was created for my friend Liese Henley, to commemorate
National Postcard Week 2013

After escaping from behind the German Iron Curtain at the age of 15, Liese had left behind her family and friends.  She spent most of he rest of her life a s a zookeeper and elephant trainer at various locations throughout the U.S.  Now handicapped by injuries from such a physically demanding job, Liese spends her time quietly lobbying for animal rights.  She loves to collect postcards and corresponds via snail-mail.

This photo was originally a postcard published in the 1970's which I have digitally altered here.
