I have always wanted to recreate the feeling that I get from places that urge me to paint them.
For this exhibition I have chosen two places that meant a lot to me.
My trip to Skye, where we went to the Quiraing, was quite emotional as many people find. It will stay with me.
My Trossachs waterfall is created from memories of all the times I spent walking in sunshine and in rain.
I remember the softness of the lower slopes and the rushing roar of the water after the rain.
Work from previous exhibitions
Sheena studied furniture design at Edinburgh College of Art before changing to painting. She likes to prepare sketches and paintings on site. Her work has been described as ‘atmospheric and evocative’ often showing the effect of light on water and land and also the juxtaposition of new and old city buildings.
Sheena shows regularly with the Royal Scottish Society of Painters in Watercolour exhibitions. Her work has been accepted by the Royal Institute of Painters in Watercolour, Aberdeen Artists Society and The Discerning Eye, London. She has been commissioned by councils and many firms and individuals in Britain and abroad.
She also tutors for continuing education and at Poldrate Arts and Crafts Centre, Haddington, where she was past chairman.
