Sheila Mullen was born in Glasgow and learnt her craft as a painter at the Glasgow School of  Art. For the past 35 years, Sheila has lived and painted in Annandale, Dumfries and Galloway. Initially inspired by Scottish landscape, cut-off from the landscape while recovering from a near fatal accident by the 2001 Foot and Mouth outbreak, Sheila turned to the Border Ballads for inspiration. More recently, Sheila’s has drawn her inspiration from the work of living poets.

While examples of  Sheila’s earlier works are included, the Exhibition at the Workshop Gallery focuses on Sheila’s imagining and re-visioning of works by contemporary poets. A selection from the paintings which
