My name is Sheila Cunningham I live in Macclesfield in Cheshire, I belong to two Art Groups within my area, Poynton Community Art Group and Bollington Art Group, of which I have the honour of being the current chairman.
I have always loved art in various mediums and I have worked and exhibited in oils, pastel, Watercolour, acrylic and recently Pencils, a medium I really enjoy.
Unfortunately there are no groups in my area that specialise in coloured Pencils and was very happy to be advised of UKCPS and made a conscious effort to visit your stand at Patchings from where I immediately joined.
I don't specialise in any particular subject or have any particular style I like to push myself and paint or draw what ever takes my eye from portraits, still life, flora and fauna, period doors and buildings and animals.
I am still very new to colour pencil and am always trying different techniques and am very open to any advice on how to get the best out of my Pencils.
