Sheila Theodoratos to show brilliantly colored pencil drawingsSheila Theodoratos has been teaching secondary art in public schools for over 32 years
Sheila Theodoratos’ brightly colored pencil drawings have earned the artist national recognition.
The Edmonds Arts Commission presents a collection of colored pencil drawings by Sheila Theodoratos at the Edmonds Library. The exhibit can be viewed in the Library Monday-Thursday, 9 a.m. to 8 p.m.; Friday, 9 a.m. to 6 p.m.; Saturday, 9 a.m. to 5 p.m.; and Sunday, 1 to 5 p.m.
Shoreline resident, Sheila Theodoratos has been teaching secondary art in public schools for over 32 years, and now also enjoys teaching drawing and creativity in adult classes around the country.
“My style of artwork calls for brilliant colors and strong values,” Theodoratos said. “I strive to capture the moods and mysteries of animals and people. Images are first conceptualized and sketched. Then, since realism in colored pencil (my dominant media) can be time intensive, I photograph my subjects and work largely from those reference photos. Visual symbolism and storytelling are components played up and worked into my compositions.”
Theodoratos has won numerous awards in juried shows from the local to international levels, and has earned Signatures and merit status in CPSA.
Her work has been published in the Artist’s Magazine, American Artist and International Artist magazines, as well as the Northlight books: Strokes of Genius.
Sheila Theodoratos’ Exhibit will be shown from March 15- April 30. The Edmonds Library is located at 650 Main St.
