Biography

"I was born in Perth Western Australia, where after completing school I studied Mathematics at the University of Western Australia, this was followed by a Post Graduate Degree in Computer Science.

It was therefore not until later in life after years of studying drawing and painting on a part time basis that I was able to follow my teenage ambition of studying art on a full time basis.

Resigning from the business world I completed a full time Fine Art degree with first class honours. I now live and work in Scarborough, North Yorkshire."..................Shirley Sheppard

My work is at blandscliff gallery and studio, 9 Blands Cliff, Scarborough and other selected galleries
