Born 1950 in Toronto, Ontario

Sheila Norgate was born in 1950 in the heart of downtown Toronto in the back seat of a Buick. She eventually migrated to the west coast where she settled in 1975.
A dazzling yet uninspired career with a major bank had run its course by 1981 and she found herself dabbling in watercolours. After an aborted attempt at formal art education in 1985, Norgate became convinced of the importance of finding her own way. Since then she has done just that.
