Historical Context:
Shelia's fascination with the architecture of Charleston, South Carolina began thirty years ago. She found the historic homes there to be so captivating that she ultimately created an entire collection of three-dimensional miniature wooden homes. New designs by Shelia reflect the wonderful iron work found on historic buildings of Charleston. She is said to "take the old and make it new."
