Shireen lives and works in Dorset and therefore she is much inspired by the rural area she lives in. She is very passionate about drawing which informs everything she does. Her sketch books and diaries accompany her everywhere.
Recently she has started using paint, collage and stitch to produce layers of a story. She is very interested in shape and form and illustrations are a particular passion. These pieces are made up of drawn images collated together to produce a story within the piece using characters and wildlife from the Dorset countryside.
