Artist Spotlight: Sheila Thompson

I cannot remember a time when I didn’t think of myself as an artist.  I have always loved to Church-Street-Door-Way-Sheila-Thompson-150x150create, draw and paint.I am motivated by a chBorinaes-Beauty-Sheila-Thompson-150x150allenge.  I like to figure it all out. Sometimes it is a joy to see the finished product not so much at other times.  But during the process  I find joy in the doing.Working in oil and in acrylic and even combining them at times.  That keeps my work fresh and helps with the vibrant colors I like to reflect in my paintings. Fine art can be very discouraging at times but it seems that those who come to see your work or to buy your work can be  so encouraging that it continues to drive you in striving to be better each time you approach a new subject.

Bio: Self taught, Owner and designer of Shelia’s collectibles,  awards from many local shows,  accepted in Piccolo Spoleto art show,  Fine art show Beaufort  and active in the Folly Beach Guild.
