“I am at my best when painting on location. The spirit or the essence of the subject matter speaks to me. For an instance I have captured the subject and the mood that is conveyed. Like the Romantic English poets, I am in communion with nature. My spirit is lifted and so hopefully is the viewers' of my work.” Sharon's art educational and professional accomplishments are impressive.
