“I have dreamt of my art becoming a brand in the marketplace, I’m a dreamer and always will be.”
After a seven year break from drawing and experiencing a tragic loss in her life she turned back to art as a way to heal, and in doing so realized her life was lacking without it. Her ambition to work from home while raising her daughters has given her the drive to pursue a future as an illustrator. Sheena was featured in Color Pencil Magazine Student Digest in the winter of 2015 issue and was invited back to the Magazine in 2016 discussing her mixed media techniques.
“I’m excited to show my daughters that they can dream and see a bigger picture for themselves, pursue a future they are passionate about, and with hard work they can make it happen.”
