We are delighted to have work by Sheena at the Hub. We have original artworks and also prints, framed and mounted work in addition to her cards. You can read about Sheena below: Why I Paint
Sheena is a Haddington based artist and I use East Lothian as a basis for much of her work. She works on site as well as in the studio and is fascinated by the movement of light over the land and water. It is not just the rolling hills and fields that take her attention. From islands, mountains and waterfalls Sheena has traveled over Scotland, not just recording what she sees but trying to convey the power and beauty of the changing landscape.
As she is so involved with changing light her paintings can take on a tonal quality. They can be colourful or moody depending on the weather that day. Her paintings are mainly in watercolour and she can be seen with a full or half size watercolour sheet weighted down and battling with the wind. Luckily all days are not like thatHer solo exhibitions include Haddington House, Peter Potter Gallery, Brunton Hall, Gladstone's Land, National Trust, Loretto Gallery and the Bass Rock Gallery. From 1990 until the present she has shown in many mixed exhibitions including RIAS, Inverbeg Gallery, The Lanark Gallery, Pitlochry Festival Theatre, Iona House Gallery, Woodstock,Oxfordshire, The Leith Gallery and Greens and Blues, North Berwick.
She has has work accepted for the Royal Institute of Painters in Watercolour and The Discerning Eye at London's Mall Galleries. She also has had work accepted by the Scottish Society of Watercolours, Aberdeen Artists Society and the North Ayrshire Arts Council.
She has been commissioned by East Lothian Council and for presentation paintings for John Hume Robertson, Claire Short and Jack MacConnell. She also has been commissioned by Dyslexia Scotland, The Scots Tongue and many presentations and individual clients in Britain and abroad.
