Sheila Kaczmarek studied art at St. Martin's School of Art, London, UCLA, Calif and the Academie des Beaux Arts, Brussels. She has taught art for over 20 years. She is a founder member of City Gallery, is President of the Guilford Art League and serves on the board of the New Haven Paint and Clay Club.
She works with mixed media including transferred photographic images. Her interest lies in both the process of layering and in stripping away surfaces. She apprenticed in the ceramic studio of the Guilford Art Center for 5 years and works with clay incorporating it with paint, metal and encaustic wax. Recently she has been intrigued by the complexity which can arise from assembling multiple forms.
