Welcome to my website! I'm Sheila Perry and I live in Southeastern Minnesota with my husband Jim. I always wanted to be an artist, but just didn't think that I could make a living being an artist. When I went to college, I wanted to be an art teacher, but there weren't many jobs in that field. So I got a degree in Elementary Education instead. My dream of being an artist never left and it wasn't until my youngest of four children was in college that I decided I was going to pursue this dream. I love to paint in a mostly realistic style in my work. Bringing out the details and giving pictures a wow factor is my goal. I have recently retired from being an elementary teacher and now can devote more time to being an artist and also spending time with my grandchildren!
