Sheila Grant's avatar Sheila Grant

My process as an artist is deeply personal. It explores my inner, wordless dialogue and feelings, and uses the canvas as a visual record of that process. My medium of choice has changed over time but a consistent theme in all my work is emotional expression, energy and the exploration of mood through color. I am drawn to abstraction in my painting because it omits form and representation, thereby removing our tendency to categorize. Color, texture, and movement take over as the avenue of expression. The rhythm within my paintings interprets the struggle we have in recognizing harmony within disharmonious events of our inward experience. My hope is when you engage with my art that your own unique inner self will be recognized, and at the same moment, be reminded of universal inner experience.
