About Me

Hi, I'm Sheetal Toor, welcome to my website!

Painting and drawing has always been a source of relaxation and fun for me. Creating something special from a blank canvas gives me a sense of pride and happiness that is hard to describe. There are no limitations when you are creating and that is something I value. Art is freedom.


I've always had a creative spirit and made sure I was involved in anything to do with art and drama at school. Having loved drawing and painting from a young age, I studied GCSE and A-level art. Even back then, I had a fascination with animals and spent most of my time experimenting with different mediums on animal studies. My final exam detailed the evolution of the cat from a sabre toothed tiger to the domestic cats we know and love.

When the time came to choose a degree, I was unsure if I could make a creative path work for me and ended up studying Business, Computing and IT at Aston University in Birmingham. After working a year in industry I quickly realised that a 9 to 5 office job wasn’t for me and decided to pursue another passion of mine which was drama. Once my degree was completed, I went on to do a post-graduate acting course at Drama Studio London.

For the past 10 years I have enjoyed a dual life as a working actress, mainly treading the boards in theatre and as a part-time IT and Web Consultant.

So where does the art come into all of this?

In 2020, when the global pandemic forced the country into lockdown, I needed a creative outlet, so I dusted off my art supplies and started to draw again. My instinct was to draw animals - I love them - and I wanted to find a connection to the outside world whilst being stuck indoors.

Before I knew it, I had built a website and started working on various pet and wildlife artworks for friends and family. I am now proud to say that I have been working as professional artist and managing my own business for over 2 years now and I am enjoying every minute.

I feel so lucky that I have rediscovered my passion for painting and drawing. I am still working as an actress but I have hung up my consultancy hat so I can channel more energy into my artwork and business. I'm excited to see where this new journey takes me.

Please take a look at my gallery. I hope you like what you see.
