Sheila is a self-taught artist, and with a love of reading she has found books to be a valuable source of guidance. Often working from sketches, her paintings are of places nearby including contemporary landscapes, mountain communities, and parts of nature big and small. She uses colour and shape to create depth and connect with the viewer one painting at a time. Each one has a story; often inspiring the next. Sheila encourages everyone to find their creative voice in art classes and workshops.
