Sheila Trinkaus, Acrylic Painter
I am inspired by the inner feelings and emotions of the human animal and the intriguing world of reptiles and insects. Nature’s creativity amazes me. I love the adventure of living and learning, and look forward to every new turn.
Sheila’s interest in the arts started early with pencil drawings, water-colours and quickly progressed to oil and acrylics.
Throughout her life Sheila has had the opportunity to be both educated in and work within a variety of mediums including silversmithing, pottery, stain glass, silk screening and printmaking, but the draw back to painting has always been strong. Sheila currently works mostly in acrylics.
My current body of work includes two different yet related styles. One is a stylized art-deco flavour, while the other has a more dramatic theatrical style with an oriental edge. The female figure is the main motif in both.
