Sheila Ticen spent time growing up in the wine country of northern California as well as in the remote red rock country of southern Utah. After high school, she worked in bookkeeping and accounting, taking night classes through the local community college in both business and art. Sheila received her Bachelor of Fine Arts, Studio Concentration in Painting degree from Sonoma State University in 2006. While at Sonoma State, she studied both oil painting and printmaking, and continues to develop work in each medium. Sheila’s work has been shown in local, regional and national art exhibits.
“My paintings are about the quiet beauty of the here and now. I deeply appreciate the natural beauty surrounding my home in the Napa Valley and the variety and richness of the nearby areas. I like to take notice of and call attention to the everyday sort of beauty that often goes unnoticed.
My recent work is quite intimate in scale and often in subject matter as well. Familiar items from my home and studio turn up in still life paintings. Many of my recent landscape paintings are similarly intimate… the view from a window of a vacation house, or the side streets and back lanes near my home.”
