Sheila Krausse grew up in Napa, CA and moved to the central coast as a teenager. At an early age her Mother, Eloise, encouraged her to paint and draw. She took art in high school, and continued taking classes in art and design at San Jose State University and Cal Poly State University, San Luis Obispo.
Sheila’s focus is on oils and acrylics with a concentration on central coast landscapes and specializes in impressionism. She loves bright colors and plenty of texture.
After teaching 35 years, she retired and started a business designing children’s clothes. At present her clothes are in several stores up and down the central coast. Her motto is, “I love to be creative whether I paint, design childrens clothing or decorate a home. It is a true passion of mine!”
