Sharon is inspired by the coastal landscape surrounding her in Northern California and Baja, Mexico. She layers oil colors, plays with space, and contrasts the solid with the ephemeral, the fixed with the fluid, to explore the forces of nature continuously at work. The surfaces of her contemporary abstract paintings are often calm, but the tension is ever-present. Everything pulsates with life, on the verge of movement and change.
Sharon has been exhibiting work in Northern California since 2002, participating in numerous group and solo shows—including the Marin Museum of Contemporary Art, the San Jose Institute of Contemporary Art and the Sonoma Valley Museum of Art. Recent publications include American Artwork, Art of Northern California and the Serena & Lily Catalog.
She shares a studio at the Industrial Center Building in Sausalito, CA, with noted Bay Area artist Katy Kuhn, and serves on the ICB Art Association’s Board of Directors.
