My artistic passion awakened while painting with my daughter. I paint watercolor landscapes of nature, wildlife, oceans, flowers, farms and all that I find beautiful. I paint house and pet portraits too. The most frequent comments I receive about my art are "That's a watercolor?" and "I thought it was a photograph!" This reflects upon the bright colors and intense detail found in my paintings. I achieve this by using small pointed brushes and more paint and less water than most.
I recently started creating spiritual, or visionary, art. These paintings are different from my landscapes but still filled with bright colors and vibrancy. They are also filled with passion, light, and healing. I am enjoying the greater creativity of watching these paintings appear without a plan or conscious intent of an outcome.
Sharon has a BA in sociology. She was a social worker and a massage therapist and healer, before becoming an artist. She is an award winning artist who exhibits extensively and is a member of the Connecticut Watercolor Society and the New Hartford Art League.
