The bold and vibrant hues of Sheila J Hall’s art give us pause as we go about our otherwise busy routines of life. Bright yellows and orange reflect the warmth of the sunlight or floral gifts of nature. Passionate reds and royal crimson, purple and gold denotes culture and ceremony. Sheila says she paints and creates from experiences, memories, dreams and visions.
Her SJ Hall textile designs have been well received. SJ Hall has been working with Shop VIDA for one year and was featured in February 2018 as one of their top designers. Originally from North Carolina, she ventured to Alaska in 1981. For eighteen years she taught art to children and adults of all ages. Five of those years she returned to North Carolina to teach art. After over thirty years as an educator, principal and supervisor Sheila is now concentrating on her art in her Raleigh studio, “Color Speaks Studio.” Hall’s colorful artwork is among many private art collections from Anchorage, Alaska to North Carolina.
While working in Anchorage, Sheila participated in the Salmon On Parade project. Her creative salmon entry was titled, “Swimming in Diversity” and displayed fabrics which represent many of the multitudes of cultures represented in Anchorage Alaska during the celebration of 50 years of statehood. Her salmon was auctioned off for charity and became a part of a private art collection after it’s Alaskan tour.
Having returned to North Carolina permanently, she continues to share her love for the arts again in her home state.
