Finding Paradise

Cover Artist: Shiloh Sophia

Artist Shiloh Sophia McCloud was born in Marin County, California, in 1970. Shiloh was trained by her mother in literature and poetry and then attended the Academy of Art. She studied with renowned Byzantine Russian Iconographer, Pavel Tikhimov and calls her method of painting “Contemporary Symbolism.”

At 23 she rendered her first one-woman show under the tutelage of American Master Painter and Sculptor Sue Hoya Sellars, whom she studied with most of her life. In 1997, she opened her first gallery, Color of Woman, in Port Townsend, Washington, followed by galleries in Sonoma, Sausalito, and San Francisco, and Mendocino, California, and is a Professor Emeritus at Sofia University.

Shiloh has produced over 1200 original paintings and is one of the most popular and collected artists in her genre as well as one of the top grossing artists in the United States for over ten years. She currently resides in the Valley of the Moon in Sonoma County with her husband, Jonathan Lewis. To see more of her work, visit or find her on Facebook.
