COLLAGES DEPICT A PERSONAL JOURNEY – by Sheila Seguin
I am a painter, printmaker and art teacher whose work is personal and expressive of all that has happened to me and moved me. My style is expressionist; the work is figurative, imaginative and colorful. It contains realistic images along with abstract images. I have been painting for over 40 years and hailed from New York City, where I have exhibited frequently as well as in Northern California and other parts of the county. I have appeared on PBS and Cable TV, showing slides of my artwork and relating how it connects with my life. Also a teacher, I instruct people how to connect with their imagery and express themselves in a distinct and original style.
I have always been a traveler while continuing to produce my art and primarily been using material and images from my travels and experiences to produce unique and personal collages.
