Sheila Hick is an American Artis from Nabraska. She currently works and resides in Paris, France. Her work is known for its experimental weavings and structural textile art. Her work ranges from small wall hangings to monumental installations. Hicks trained as a painter at Yale, and recieved her BFA and MFA. She translates elements of abstraction, color theory, and painterly gesture into thread, where they perhaps originated.  Hicks incorporates vibrant, unrestrained blues, oranges, and reds in her work. Her works reflect the experience of curious and consent engagement with the material world.
