Sheila E. is arguably the most acclaimed female drummer in history. She is also an accomplished singer, author, actress and now fine artist.
Born in Oakland, California, Sheila E. began her career performing and recording with music legend George Duke in the 1970s. With Duke, she sang and played percussion. By 1983, Sheila E. launched her career as a solo artist and has since released eight albums and brought the world several timeless classics like "Glamorous Life" and "Love Bizarre." Her work with Prince, both on record and in concert over the last four decades is also one of legend.
Now, with the Emagination Collection, Sheila E. ventures into a new realm...fine art. Featuring seven works in the collection, each piece is crafted from the rhythmic work of the artist using drums and percussion.
Music legend Sheila E. created the Emagination Collection in Los Angeles over the last 12 months. Working with Los Angeles art team SceneFour, each work in the collection is crafted from a new medium in art...rhythm. Like a painter utilizing oils and brushes, Sheila E. worked with drumsticks that light in variety of ways to build each of the visuals seen in this release. The results are vivid, abstract and conceptually unique.
All of the pieces in the Emagination Collection are printed on canvas. Each is numbered and individually signed by Sheila E. and SceneFour. Certificates of Authenticity are included with each work.
