Fine art & commissions by Christy Sheehan

Christy Sheehan



Thank you for visiting! I'm Christy and my goal as an artist is to take you to somewhere wonderful in your mind or in your past. Whether it be a beautiful place, happy memory or capturing the raw emotion in a special moment in time. One of my favorite things to do as an artist is to paint candid portraits for my client's commissions.


My Medium

 I work primarily in acrylic and specialize in portraits, but have a passion for abstract and abstract realism. My ongoing love for art, education and learning new things has me consistently practicing new techniques. 


My Inspiration

I'm so grateful for my husband, who always supports my dreams and passions, my two little girls and two dogs. The freedom to express my creativity and build my dreams is the best thing I could ever ask for.


How It Began

  I have had a life long interest in fine art. In college, I had the incredible opportunity to study fine art in Benoni, South Africa. My love for the animals and culture there continued to inspire me and my art. Funny thing is that while I enjoyed other forms of art, for a very long time I actually did not like painting at all. I wouldn't do it. Luckily, I had a friend who saw my potential and asked me if I could replicate a painting for her. I told her that I did not paint. She offered me a good amount of money to "try". As a student putting myself through college waiting tables back in the day, I was motivated to say the least.... and so it began.
