BIO

As a youngster, Sheila was successful in earning a place at Manchester High School of Art. Her art career, however was put on hold until much later when, in 1986 she began teaching in Adult Education. Sheila's medium of choice at that time was watercolour.


In 2008, following the death of her father, Sheila gave up teaching for a while and decided to concentrate on her own artistic endeavours. Although she works now in a variety of media Sheila has discovered the versatility and joy of coloured pencil and much of her recent work is completed in that medium.


Sheila accepts commissions for pet portraits, landscapes, book illustration, paintings of houses and indeed painting houses as she also enjoys painting murals. “The contrast in size is most rewarding.” Sheila is now semi retired giving her the opportunity to explore a wide range of arts and crafts.
