Sheeba is as elegant as she is exotic. She also has a softness and sophistication about her which adds appeal. Creating Sheeba was a calming experience. This character's gentleness was transmitted from painting to painter. Since there'd been a few weeks between Dreamer's creation, and Sheeba's, I was very aware of a shift in ambiance and approach.
