Sheila has been doing artwork all her life, mostly painting and drawing. She had her first gallery show in 1975. She has studied at the following schools of art including Burnley School of Art, Seattle, WA, Honolulu Academy of Arts, Honolulu, HI, Hoschschue fur Bildende und Kunst, Berlin, Germany, and Frei Academy Art Psychopolis, The Hague, Holland. Her paintings are shown in several international art collections. She has worked in ink, oils, acrylics and sculpture; but watercolor is her greatest love. She invites you to enjoy these artworks. She paints them because she is in awe of the beauty of our earth-its endless and ever-changing clouds, water, sky, forests and mountains. When she paints these landscapes, she sits at her easel and allows herself to enter into a quiet space of no thought. She makes a mark and the painting begins to appear on the empty white paper. She just tries to keep up with its birthing.
Sheila's work can be seen at the Art Gallery of SnoValley as well as the Art Gallery of SnoValley Online Store.
