Dallas based artists Sheilah & Dave Unger are award winning fine artists creating works of art using watercolor, oil, and mixed media
Sheilah is a National award winning artist and is a native born Texan. Showing a strong interest in art as a child, her grandfather insisted that she have training in oil painting from an accomplished artist. She continues her training to improve her skills, and to see where her love of art will lead her. Her commissioned paintings can be found as far away as Ireland. In 2005 Sheilah was diagnosed with a very aggressive breast cancer. She found art to be a form of therapy as she was confined to being at home during her medical treatments. Since she could no longer be out and around others, she invited her husband, Dave to paint with her. Much to her surprise Dave had a natural gift for the arts, and they have been painting together ever since.
Dave was born and raised in North Central Canada. Dave began painting when Sheilah became ill and was confined to their home. Initially working only with watercolor he found a way to express himself through painting. Now Dave works in oil painting as well with a strong desire to grow in both media. His attention to detail and his love of nature and art have influenced his work.
