6 Word Bio – Creating community through ART and conversation. Sharon graduated from UC /DAAP and began career as high school and elementary ART instructor. Her pencil and charcoal drawings evolved into watercolor and batiks. In 2003 Sharon began painting primarily in oil and has maintained a studio at Pendleton for many years. She continues as an Artist Facilitator working with individuals with Alzheimer’s.
I paint contemporary landscapes in oil that lean toward abstraction. A continuing approach has been “What is the least you need?” Not in reference to austerity but in the mind’s perception. Our mind fills in the blank and makes an emotional or representational connection. I am very interested in translating an idea or concept into painting using layers of color and ragged edges for surface tension.
