Sharon was born in Oakland, Ca and has spent most of her life in Santa Cruz, Ca. Her career began with studying watercolor, color & design, interior design and architectural drawing. She started acrylics on canvas more than 20+ years ago. She has participated in hundreds of juried Art & Wine Festivals and winning many local art competitions for advertising posters.

After many years being with a New York/Australian art publisher, her original paintings are now self published into Giclee prints. Sharons paintings are created in her brightly lit art studio that faces her lovely garden. Her colorful florals, peaceful beach scenes and series of fun rooster paintings have been inspired by Van Gogh. Shes filled her life with the love of painting, gardening, travel and a devoted supportive husband. Sharing her art with others have been enormously rewarding. Her next chapter of life she'll be teaching on the Cunard Queen Mary 2 starting this fall 2019.

CALL FOR SOCIALLY ENGAGED ARTISTS Sanchez Art Center, Pacifica, CA, seeks socially engaged artists to create site-specific community engaged public art reflecting on sea level rise, to support the community to civilly engage in authentic conversations, and work collaboratively to meet the requirements for municipalities to develop adaptation strategies. Understanding that we need to adapt to the impacts of climate change, we also recognize the need to reduce greenhouse gas emissions that accelerate climate change and resulting impacts like sea level rise. From manufacturing to disposal, the more stuff we buy and throw away, the more energy is used. (More than 40% of our climate impact comes from how we make, haul, use and throw away stuff, including food. These are called consumption emissions.) Physical resources used in this project must therefore support a waste reduction approach that incorporates repurposed materials and recycled content. DEADLINE FOR SUBMISSIONS: Tuesday, July 9, 2019, 11pm For more details 1220 Linda Mar Blvd, Pacifica, CA, 94044.
