She came to England wharf she trained at the Bond Street London School of Art. During the second world war, Shiel worked as an illustrator for a Medical Studio. After the war, she turned her attention to floral painting studying the Dutch Old Master. This gave her a great appreciation of floral art as expressed in her finely detailed painting. Her still life florals reveal not only a study of inanimate objects positioned in light and shadow, but also lively microcosmic worlds unnoticed inner daily life. Her florals use a variety of blossoms, rose, tulips, iris and many more to create a sunlit arrangement with insect inhabited shadows and her signature minute fairy hidden within. In fact, one of her first clients informed Shiel that former Queen Mary had accepted one of her works. Canvas size is 24" wide and 30" high unframed. Framed size is 29.75" wide and 35.75" high.
