Sheila Jarkins

Sheila's artwork reflects her experimental nature and observation of the natural world. She works in many mediums and subject areas. Her nature-inspired jewelry reflects what she values and appreciates. She can't pass by a weathered, fragmented shell, a cracked seed with unique features, a clump of withered grasses with linear rhythm, a stone that beckons to be touched, without picking it up and stashing it in her pocket. Sheila creates jewelry that elevates her small treasures to a place of distinction that can be appreciated as art. By carefully choosing shapes, colors, and textures that work in compositional harmony with clay and hand-made paper, she creates jewelry that makes a personal statement of the organic transient beauty of nature

Sheila is also the author and illustrator of the Marco Flamingo series of children's books.
