Sheila Karrow


Award-winning artist and teacher Sheila Karrow lives with her two children on Haida Gwaii in British Columbia. After completing a degree in fine art and education, Sheila spent several years teaching high school visual art and English. After ten years of full-time art making, Sheila earned a masters degree in art education and is currently teaching in the school district where she continues to share her passion for imaginative learning with young children and adults.

Sheila’s paintings communicate both a literal and metaphorical understanding of the natural world. She strives for an intimate connection with the subject yet also reveals the unknowable reality of such a form. Her carefully rendered images in acrylic and watercolour reveal the intensity and interconnectedness of life.
