Sharon is an accomplished portrait artist with a passion for the classical romantic style. She graduated with honors from Northern Illinois University with a major in Visual Communication earning a Bachelor of Fine Arts. Sharon has enjoyed a career as a successful corporate executive and has lead creative departments in the Marketing Services and Corporate Communications areas. She has spent more than 15 years researching the classical painting methods and techniques of the Old Masters. Her current technique is a derivation of what many refer to as the Flemish technique. This technique highlights the complexity of flesh tones and creates a luminosity that makes the painting look as though it is lit from within. Sharon feels strongly that art should be integrated into one’s home decor and that it has the ability to visually communicate who you are and what you value. She also believes that family is our greatest treasure and finds joy in helping others Illustrate What Matters Most.
