Born in America, holidays in New Hampshire where hours and hours of fiddling with a paint brush and no distractions in the country house, it became obvious that she had a special talent.
Landscaping took Sheila’s attention for many years but marriage to a Kiwi, a move to New Zealand, the arrival of two boys and twenty years between the two careers has seen Sheila fulfilling her potential as an artist.
Sheila has always lived by the beach and her art reflects the strong influence of the much loved coastal environment.
The seagull is a beautiful bird; just look at the colours. For me the seagull represents freedom, summer, peace.
Sheila works full-time as an artist creating works in oils, acrylics, water colours and mixed media.
