About Sheena Bevis-White
Sheena Bevis-White has been painting marine subjects for over 20 years, and has been selected to exhibit at the RSMA annual Open Exhibition at the Mall Galleries for the last four consecutive years. In 2015 she was awarded the Classic Boat Magazine prize for best painting at the show.
She writes: ‘...but it was not until we moved to Rock in North Cornwall in 2011 that I began to work in earnest. Now, immersed in my new life by the sea, walking the glorious coastline, and sailing in the beautiful Camel Estuary, I am constantly inspired to evoke on canvas the sights and sounds of this wonderful landscape.
Boats afloat, particularly classic yachts, and usually in full sail, are my favourite subject - capturing the excitement and power of wind-filled sails, the grace of a heeling hull and the sound of a surging bow-wave becomes a totally absorbing and often exhilarating task.’
