Sheldon had been drawing and painting from an early age and the only time he took off from his art were during his university years. One of the ironies of his art career is that Sheldon is color-blind.
Sheldon had spent many years phtographing and painting the scenery from Canada, Hawaii and the American Southwest. Sheldon has been painting full time since 2013 and he is now concentrating on his surrealistic art.
Sheldon is most influenced by Rembrandt, Velasquez, Dali and Danby. Sheldon works out of his home in a northern suburb of Toronto, Canada. One of his inspirations besides his wife Fern, had been his late Chesapeake Bay retriever Java, who has been immortalized in some of his paintings.
