On Trinidad the larger island of The Republic of Trinidad and Tobago is where Sheila Henry was born. After a rewarding childhood, she migrated to the United States in the summer of 1969. Soon thereafter Sheila became a Naturalized Citizen. A formal education at a University was financially inaccessible, however her passion for poetry compelled Sheila to a prolific self scholarship. Perhaps it is the reason her writing style can best be categorized as Visual Poetry, blending emotion and vision into a poem of color. Sheila has resigned from the daily workforce and resides in New Jersey. She spends her time enjoying her grandchildren and preparing her collection of poetry for publication.
