Meet Pencil Artist Sheila Cain-Sample

Sheila Cain-Sample has been drawing for as long as she can remember.

“It’s happy time for me, a place to run free and relax.  I’m a pencil artist who loves detail.  It’s all about the contrast between dark and light, shapes and lines,” she says.  “Photorealism or hyperrealism is the challenge – to look at an object and see it then have it flow through my hand to paper.”

Sheila works primarily with graphite but loves to change to coloured pencil if the piece dictates it.

You’ll find Sheila in the vendor tent at our Old-Fashioned Christmas this Sunday from 10 a.m. – 4 p.m. peddling her beautiful hand-drawn art. To learn more about Sheila visit her blog and etsy page or look her up on Facebook.
