About the Artist
Best known for her large, vibrant figure paintings, Sheila’s work explores the fluid relationship between figure and environment: how each continuously informs and affects the other. At the heart of this exploration lies the notion that we both form – and are formed by - all we have seen and experienced.
When she is not in the painting studio, Sheila can be found teaching yoga, searching for her lost keys and exploring the wonders of the Northwest.
"Ultimately, I remain endlessly curious of a painting’s ability to communicate independently from any figurative framework as energy broken down into color, texture and movement."

"When I am in a situation that makes me feel small, shame-filled, and unworthy, I will think to myself, "protect your magic." When I see a friend in a situation that makes them feel small, shame-filled, unworthy, I will tell them, "protect your magic." ⠀
