About the Author

Nelda Sheets is an award-winning professional artist with paintings in museums and private collections. Nelda is listed in Who's Who in America and has been honored by Silva International with their highest award, the World Cup.

She was in Jose Silva's first public class and worked closely with Silva from the onset, assisting with research.

Nelda is the first Certified Silva Method Instructor. She taught art to children for twelve years and used the Silva Method techniques with great success in those classes. A desire to share problem-solving techniques with her students triggered a desire to teach the Silva Method to children.

Nelda has taught the Silva Basic course, the Silva Graduate course, Ultra, Mind 2.5, the Silva children's course, the Creativity Workshop, Positive Parenting Workshop, and the Silva Graduate Instructor training. She has taught in such places as Kenya, Australia, Ireland, France, Netherlands, Canada, Puerto Rico, Guam, as well as in many cities in the United States.


"...I filled in my perspective and experiences as I warmed to your narratives...brilliant; definitely "a creative tapestry woven with picturesque threads of gold, wool, silk, and homespun cotton" I would have to add LOVE, INSIGHT, WISDOM, PRACTICALITY, HUMILITY, JOY, LAUGHTER, PEACE, RESPECT, RESPONSIBILITY, CARING, DEDICATION, LOYALTY, JUSTICE, SERVICE... AND VIRTUES AS YET TO BE NAMED!!"

Harry McKnight, Certified Silva Method Instructor

Claiming Our Creative Heritage ~ Silva Stories begins with a short autobiographical sketch that lets the reader in on the fantastic voyages, life-changing events, and wonderful synchronicity that placed Nelda Sheets and Jose Silva on the same path. Her biographical bits about Jose, early-day instructors, graduates of the very first class, and the artist Dord Fitz, are revealing, funny, and sometimes poignant.
