Other Artists Say:

"Sharon is the best teacher in our 10 year experience". 


As I've matured as an artist, I find evoking mood and atmosphere in my work has become my primary focus. The relationships of things and the emotion of a given moment holds my interest.

Working en plein air for many years has developed a sensitivity to and a depth of knowledge for the effects of light and atmosphere on the landscape. Conversely, work in the studio provided essential time for creative experimentation and the development of my unique technical approach to painting. These combined elements are essential to the outcome of each of my paintings.

The joy of being an artist with the ability to explore self-expression in ways that brings joy, insight and love to others is truly a blessing. I am deeply grateful to my family and friends for their encouragement in my pursuit of a creative life. Because of them, I strive always to keep an open mind to new ideas and to continue to learn the vocabulary of painting, thus furthering my ability to express my ideas and deep feelings of the natural world.
