Hi my name is Sheldene and I live in Australia. I like to call myself an artist because I transform something into something else. We are all artists in fact, because each of us create these transformations daily in one way or another.
I moved to Australia from South Africa in 2006 when I was 16 years old, and immediately felt right at home in this country. I finished high school in 2008, started a business degree, worked on the mines in the Pilbara where I met my husband, moved to Perth in 2013, worked at an engineering company doing procurement and admin. 2014 came along, I needed a new job. I discovered my ability to draw, took the leap and worked at a coffee shop to have more hours to develop my drawing into something full-time. Self-studied as much as possible and in 2015 alone managed to complete 1008 hours of drawing time on 56 highly realistic drawings, many of which are custom creations located world-wide. 2015 - 2018 my youtube channel started to grow and so did my students on Patreon and my website.
And now we are here....at an exciting stage where I am in wonder of 'what else'.
