Viewed and photographed from space in 2007 as part of the National Australia Day Council's Look Up and Smile project, the large scale artwork is entitled PEACE and is recognised by the Guiness Book of Records as the largest sand painting in the world.
Sheila is well known for her large paintings of the six Yuat Aboriginal seasons which are on permanent display at the Benedictine Monastery town of New Norcia in Western Australia. Each painting shows the special places, animals and plants of each Yuat season, and one painting includes a rosary.

Through her involvement with Urban Indigenous Tours, run by Spirit of Australia award recipient Rebecca Casey, Sheila has been able to showcase her artwork and share her personal journey as a woman who has dealt with separation, grief and displacement as part of the Stolen Generation. Guests on Urban tours are invited to spend a morning with Sheila Humphries where she reveals how the love and support of her husband Bill and her 8 children set her on a path of healing and recovery as she re-educated herself and discovered a natural artistic gift through her aboriginal artworks.
Sheila experiences immense healing from her artwork and she believes that art, just like her faith in religion, is about understanding the past to find a way forward. Sheila Humphries' paintings reflect reconciliation, faith and healing.
