SHEENA PIKE ART & ILLUSTRATION
is a self-taught Canadian illustrator finding her way through the world of Art and discovering herself along the way. Inspired by many things she enjoys exploring the beautiful imaginative world of surrealism by combining realistic and illustrative styles. Whimsy and otherworldly, her work often evokes an intensity giving you a glimpse into her creative mind and the way she sees the world. Fascinated by color since a young child, she demonstrates it’s beauty by taking full advantage of the glorious palette of colors that our spectrum has to offer. Captivating her audience with intricate details exploring, nature, surreal, imaginative, and fantasy-like images. Sheena’s style has developed as a true reflection of herself and she is looking to continue to evolve.
“I have dreamt of my art becoming a brand in the marketplace, I’m a dreamer and always will be.”
After a seven-year break from drawing to do graphic design, she turned her focus back to the drawing board and in doing so realized her life was lacking without it. Her ambition to work from home while raising two daughters has given Sheena the drive to pursue a future as an illustrator. Sheena was featured in Color Pencil Magazine Student Digest in the winter of 2015 issue and was invited back to the Magazine in 2016 to discuss her mixed media techniques. Sheena has also been in other publications as well as interviewed by product distributors such as PanPastel.
“I’m excited to show my daughters that they can dream and see a bigger picture for themselves, pursue a future they are passionate about, and with hard work they can make it happen.”
As Sheena has continued to develop a style all of her own and discover her niche people have begun to respond. She hopes to continue to captivate, inspire and create beautiful imagery finding her way into your imagination.
COLORED PENCIL MAGAZINE
OCTOBER 2015 ISSUE
"Colored pencil has always been my weapon of choice however after some personal growth and something I refer to as my artistic epiphany, curiosity got the best of me. Before I knew it I was mixing, blending and completely consumed by
the spellbinding spectrum of colors that PanPastels has to offer. The moment my "Ultra Soft Artist Pastel Portrait Set” of twenty colors arrived, the little art nerd living inside my head was doing back flips while my drawing hand twitched."
