Steinborn is an impressionistic oil and acrylic painter who specializes in western landscapes, seascapes, wildlife and sunsets. Originally from Savannah, Georgia, Steinborn has lived in the western states for 35 years and now resides in Bellingham, WA.  She interprets the beauty and majesty of the natural environment to express her feelings about the moment and place. She often does plein air studies to interpret later into larger works. She is a Signature Member of the American Impressionist Society and a juried member of the Oil Painters of America. American Artist Magazine introduced Sheila Steinborn to its readers by featuring her work in the September, 1989 issue. Since then her work has been featured in numerous books and other publications and has been included in many corporate and private collections. Awards, invitationals, commissions, Oil Painters of America and other major shows followed and a growing number of collectors have made her canvasses highly sought.
