Her art studies over the last l8 years include two “Images” workshops, Callaway Gardens, Ga. and painting workshops given by Barbara Nechis, Zoltan Szabo, Alex Powers, Janet Powers, Neil Watson, Sharon Carson, Leslie Frontz and Frank Covino.  Sheehan also attended classes at the Charles Cecil Studios, Florence, Italy.

Some memorable travels include trips to New Mexico, Ireland, Italy, France, Spain and sailing in the Bahamas.  They have been inspiration for many paintings.
