Contemporary Collage

“Abstract, contemporary and beautiful, Sheila Riley’s collage pieces are truly unique. Inspired by water and reflections, her collages are made using tissue paper, magazines, paint, thread and ribbon to create a sense of depth and emotion in every work.”


Sheila writes…..

Having married a musician, my life was very busy in different ways until in September 2008 I was unexpectedly widowed. Suddenly I found myself needing to find a way of expressing some of the most intense emotions I have ever experienced.

As will be apparent, I have always had a fascination with water and reflections. From a more traditional start I began experimenting with collage and am gradually developing a style that is quite abstract and contemporary. Using torn tissue paper and magazines with paint and coloured threads, I am enjoying creating some vibrant work.

Some of Sheila's original and unique works of art are available to view and buy from The Irène Laksine Gallery.
