Sheila McInnes has developed her highly individual style. Her subjects are very personal, everyday scenes of life captured in a moment, of people and dogs. Working in acrylic, she paints in layers and scrapes back using a varied choice of tools. Finishing with a varnish creates an ‘oil paint’ look to her work. Her work has been described as ‘a mixture of the naïve, the personal, and the sophisticated handling of colour and tone’.
