Sheila is an award winning, professional watercolour artist specializing in quirky animals, landscapes and flowers. She is a member of the Fine Art Trade Guild and the Society of Floral Painters.
Sheila works in watercolour which suits her impulse to get ideas down as they occur. As well as loving its unpredictability and transient nature. “ Just when you think you have the hang of it, it surprises you, I love the way rich pigmented colours move in the water- almost as if they have a life of their own. I like to guide them on to the paper rather than command them.”
Sheila started her painting career painting flowers “ I’ve always loved gardening and flower painting was a natural extension of this passion.” Sheila is also inspired by the beautiful Derbyshire landscape where she lives and also loves painting animals especially dogs, cats and her trade mark hares. Sheila also has a fondness for Venice and loves the architecture and the romantic images that can be conjured from it.
