Covet Me Care For Me is a durational performance installation in which the public participate.

In the piece 10 participants at a time use headphones to listen to a pre-recorded meditation, or story, 'on light' whilst viewing a series of 6 slides through desktop slide-viewers.
And Fell unto a Circle Sphere
And Fell Unto A Circle Sphere was a co-created work made by Sheila and service users at Broadoak Unit in 2015 as part of Tate Space - a partnership between Tate Liverpool and Mersey Care NHS Trust. This was Sheila's second Tate Space project (the first was Etyma - A Tiding of Good Words in 2014). The project took its inspiration from the surrealist artist Leonora Carrington's diverse output and life.
