Sheila Golden

The Natural World

"My art expresses my love and

appreciation of animals and

the natural world -- the beauty,

mystery, energy and vitality.

Although on the surface my

work contains familiar images,

it is also about dreams and symbols

of experience as they express

the mysterious and spiritual."
