Sharon, a true Alaskan artist, has been painting the scenic beauty of Alaska and
Montana for over thirty years. Her view of both the "Great Land"
and the "Big Sky Country" is the central theme of most of her
art work. Her subjects are recognizable places, from the Rocky
Mountains, streams and ranches of Montana to Alaska's wind-blown
Arctic coastal plains and her dark Southeastern rain forests.
Sharon was born in Eureka, California, a third generation
Eurekan. She graduated high school there and attended California
State University, Humboldt in Arcata, California where she
studied art. It was in this environment of magnificent redwoods
and wild Pacific coastline that her interest in realistic
landscape painting began.
Sharon moved to Alaska in 1963 and spent the next sixteen years
studying, enjoying and painting that awe-inspiring scenery. Her
material comes from her personal observations of the Chugach,
Wrangell, Fair Weather, Alaska mountain ranges and the Bering
Sea, Arctic and Pacific oceans. Her work has been acclaimed at
art shows throughout Alaska, winning numerous awards including
several "Best of Show".
In 1979 she moved to Montana and has continued to record her
observations of beautiful places in this state including ranches
and wildlife. She works in oil, acrylic, and watercolors. In
the summer of 2001 she and her husband moved to the little
mountain town of Pierce, Idaho. The serene forest, rivers,
wildlife and quiet were her settings.
Now the year of 2013 finds Sharon settled
back in Missoula, Montana. Her love of the great outdoors continues. She is
looking forward to new venues around Big Sky Country again.
Her work has been featured in galleries in Alaska, Montana and Idaho and has
been purchased and displayed in Mexico, Japan, England, Finland, and
throughout the United States. Presently she is marketing through Legacy Fine
Art Gallery of Hot Springs Arkansas.
