Born in Jersey Sheila has always lived on this Channel Island and since retiring from normal working life when several years were spent working as a free-lance portrait and wedding photographer she has found success and enjoyment in pursuing her lifelong interest in photography.

In recent years images have been submitted to gain a number of awards including the Racal Medal at the 29th Algarve International in 2003: the Edward Roper Medal at Solihull in 2005 and a medal at the 2005 London Salon of Photography with 'Street Tango'. Sheila also participates annually in the Advanced Workers Exhibition for Chichester Camera Club on the Mainland. 

Sheila has gained the Credit of the Photographic Alliance of Great Britain, is an Associate of the Royal Photographic Society and currently working towards the Distinction of the Photographic Alliance of Great Britain.

Sheila's work on producing images of her home environment can be found at the Harbour Gallery at St Aubin and other Island outlets.  She very much enjoys meeting friends and visitors to her craft stall at the many local farmers markets and other similar events which take place on Jersey throughout the year.
