Welcome to my studio

   Art is a journey, and I hope you will join me in my travels as I paint intriguing spots in Michigan and Florida, where I make my summer and winter homes, and other locales around the country.

    I have a passion for painting on location “en plein air” and enjoy meeting the people who stop by to watch me work.

   Hope to see you on the trail! — Sheila
