    Sheila Fell was born in Aspatria, Cumberland, into a mining family in 1931. Although she never returned to live in Cumberland, she visited often, including with her mentor L.S. Lowry, for painting trips. The dramatic, brooding landscape of Cumberland was to dominate the artist's work for the duration of her tragically short career. The Reverend Vernon D. Clarke was Vicar of Aspatria from 1954 - 1963.
