Art is all about emotion, feeling and giving to others. it is such a wonderful thing to do to start from scratch and build up painting for people to enjoy. So Sheila never did art for a living now she is promoting herself for exhibitions. When she went to school there were never all those wonderful art colours and medias to hand. Flowers and forests are her main works.
Please enjoy the website and if you would like one Sheila would only be delighted to paint for you or to teach you her techniques.
