SHEENA PIKE ART & ILLUSTRATION
is a self-taught Canadian illustrator finding her way through the world of commercial art discovering herself along the way. Inspired by many things she enjoys exploring the beautiful imaginative world of fantasy art by combining realistic and illustrative styles. Unique and colourful her work often encourages you to see things in a magical, charismatic and sometimes even dark emotional way, giving you a glimpse into her creative mind and the way she sees the world. Fascinated by colour since a young child she demonstrates its beauty by taking full advantage of the glorious palette of colours that our spectrum has to offer. Captivating her audience with intricate details exploring nature, animals, surreal, imaginative, and fantasy-like images. Sheena works with both traditional and digital mediums.
“I have dreamt of my art becoming a brand in the marketplace, I’m a dreamer and always will be.” Her ambition to work from home while raising two daughters has given Sheena the drive to pursue a future as an illustrator. “I’m excited to show my girls that they can dream and see a bigger picture for themselves, pursue a future they are passionate about, set big goals and with hard work they can make it happen.”
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.
As Sheena has continued to develop a style all of her own and discover her niche, people have begun to respond. Her best-selling Lil Dragonz characters have been finding their way into the hearts of many as well as her colorful fantasy animals. Sheena hopes to continue to captivate and create beautiful imagery finding her way into your imagination.

COLORED PENCIL MAGAZINE
"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."
