Sheila McInerney’s work has been exhibited nationally including exhibitions at James Madison University, The University of Bridgeport as well as exhibitions in East Hampton, NY and New York City. A chine colle print from her Dance Memories series was included in a traveling exhibition in India. In 2011 she became a member and exhibited with The National Collage Society and was selected for their 2011/2012 On-Line exhibition. Her work can also be viewed online at the Museum of Modern Art studio visit website.
Sheila’s latest mixed media series, Invisible Connections, explores the rich inner world of her dreams and memories. In the work she creates symbols and abstract images emphasizing color, line and shape and utilizes a variety of dyed, bleached, inked, painted and stained papers, as well as fabric and paper transfers, acrylic and watercolor paints, vintage threads and wine bottle caps. The result is a play between outer and inner expression. Her aim is always to capture a sense of wonder and yearning in the images.
Sheila is a M.A. graduate of New York University and lives and works in New York City and East Hampton, New York.
