Scottish born, Sheila Adams came to Canada in 1956 and made Calgary her home where the rugged beauty of Western Canada, with its Rocky Mountains, Foothills and Alberta plains, provided ideal subject matter for her work in Oil and Acrylic.

 

Always open to new concepts, she has explored various aspects of painting, experimenting with color and design. Sheila's work can be seen in private and corporate collections across Canada, Great Britain, South Africa and the United States.

 

Greatly influenced by artists such as Norman Brown who was one of Alberta's most proficient and knowledgeable artists, and Jean Geddes a superb teacher and artist in her own right, Sheila is also a member of the Calgary Sketch Club and The Federation of Canadian Artists, and in March 1996 was awarded signature status with the Federation.

 

Sheila is represented by Webster Galleries Inc., one of Calgary's  leading fine art galleries, located at 812 - 11th. Ave. SW, T2R 0E5 where more of her work can be seen on the Webster Galleries website at www.webstergalleries.com
