Sheila Hicks










I love this lady.
There is much to read and learn about Sheila. Check out Sikkema Jenkins & Co., her gallery in New York, for even more images of her work. The Smithsonian has also done an oral history with her and there are many nice books out—Sheila Hicks: 50 Years is the one I first discovered her in (Thanks you Camberwell College of Art Library!)
