Hi! My name is Sheena, my family is from Scotland and I am first generation born American. I grew up in the San Francisco Bay Area. I have 2 sisters, one being my Identical twin. We moved quite a bit, from Scotland to America and a few cities in between. As a young teen, I was passionate about gymnastics, and was on a competitive gymnastics team in Fremont for several years. I took quite a few art classes in high school and that is where my passion for art began. Even as a young child, I have always had a deep love for animals, which is why I probably love to draw or paint animals so much. I have had no real professional training.
In 1990, I married my soul mate and best friend Jesse. Together we have two beautiful daughters. Being busy working and raising a family, I did not draw or paint often. As our children grew, however, I began to dabble with art here and there, and was often told by friends and family that I should take it more seriously. My twin sister, Kathy, was my best friend and my biggest fan, and she encouraged me to sell my art work. Kathy was diagnosed with breast cancer in 2008, and was a survivor for 5 years. She lost her battle with breast cancer in 2013, which was absolutely devastating and the worst thing I have ever had to endure in my entire life. Since losing my twin sister, I have become more passionate about painting, and I have finally decided to take her advise and let others share in my art So here I am....
I hope you like it as much as she did.
This is for you Kath, up there in heaven with Mom and Dad. I Love you, and I will continue to love and miss you forever. xoxoxoxo
