We are pleased to announce that we now sell mounted prints by local artist Sheila Gill.
Sheila’s watercolor paintings have earned her a number of ‘highly commended’ awards and TV appearances, she has become a member of the Fine Art Trade Guild and the Society of Floral Painters.
Flowers as a subject, though, have been joined by landscapes and animals. “I’ve always loved gardening,” explains Sheila, “and flower painting was a natural extension of this passion.
The beauty of the Derbyshire landscape, particularly the White Peak, begs to be painted, and I spend a lot of time working outdoors.
“I’m inordinately fond of Venice, and I’ve worked there a couple of times, as for animals, I love horses, hares and cats. Unfortunately, my son’s allergic to the latter, so I use next door’s resident feline Barney as a model.”
