Christy Sheehan has had a life long interest in fine art. She traveled to Africa in college and studied fine art in Benoni, South Africa. Her love for the animals and culture there inspired her and her art.

She works primarily in acrylic and specializes in exact replica portraits, but has a passion for abstract and abstract realism. Her ongoing love for art, education and learning new techniques has her currently practicing in “impasto” style, using only a palette knife.

Christy lives in Orange County, CA with her husband, two little girls and two dogs.
