About Sheila Romard

Over the past 20 years, I've been developing my contemporary impressionistic style in both watercolour and oil, while raising my family in Newmarket Ontario. I spent 4 years living just outside Prince Edward County and now enjoy living back just north of Toronto. Ontario is a beautiful province with 4 seasons that inspire!
My very first solo exhibit was in Newmarket in 2015. In 2017 I was honoured with the People’s Choice Award for the Expressions exhibit, Belleville, as well as the Juror’s Choice award from the Colborne Art Gallery 2018. My work has been displayed in the Parrott Gallery, QAC Gallery the Mayor’s Office in Belleville and Dinkel’s Restaurant, Belleville and the Colborne Art Gallery, Colborne. I'm currently a member of the Quinte Arts Council, a founding member and president of the BVA (Brighton Visual Arts Group) in Brighton Ontario, the YRAC (York Region Arts Council) and the McMichael Gallery.
My paintings are found in private collections throughout Canada and the US.
If you like my style and want a custom painting, I would be delighted to hear from you.
