A request for a portrait of a person, as opposed to a pet, pushed me out of my ‘comfort zone’ as an artist,
The client wrote this testimonial;
‘Having my portrait painted had been an idea I held for many years. A chance meeting with Sheena brought this concept into reality and I was really thrilled when she agreed to paint me. My time spent with Sheena, during my sittings, was relaxed and most enjoyable. She took her time getting to know me and we had several interesting chats over coffee! An important part of her work is capturing the soul or essence of her subject. To her this is as important as the physical representation. When I saw the finished work I was thrilled. I unveiled not only a real likeness but also “the other I”; the aura which emanates from within me; I believe this makes my portrait more real. I cannot thank Sheena enough for taking the time to paint my portrait. She is a true artist with exceptional talent.’
