Sheila has had a lifelong passion for drawing and painting. She enrolled at Glasgow School of Art and studied there from 2003 - 2006. She then began marketing her work professionally in 2007 and her art career has developed from there. She is a full time artist working from her studio in East Renfrewshire.
Sheila’s style of painting is contemporary and she enjoys depicting landscapes and studio still life paintings. She loves colour and texture. Her landscape paintings are full of vibrant colour and light. Scenes are depicted with emphasis on realism and attention to detail combined with more abstract brush strokes. Still life and floral pieces are bold and carefully composed.
Sheila’s work was featured on the BBC One Show Summer Exhibition and she has paintings hanging in the Scottish Parliament Building. Her paintings were shortlisted for the 2017 and 2018 Ken Bromley Cover Competition. Sheila’s work is exhibited in galleries throughout the UK and has been sold to clients in the UK, Canada, Australia, France and the Channel Islands.
