About Me

HugeSS1

Thank you for your interest in me and my artwork.  I live in sunny Tampa, Florida with my loving husband, beautiful daughter and 3 amazing dogs.  I have been selling online for many years and I absolutely love it!  While art shows and gallery installations are wonderful outlets for displaying my work, the internet has allowed me to sell my original paintings and prints to thousands of collectors worldwide.  Everyone should be able to buy great art.  I have a Masters degree in Fine Art but consider myself self-taught.  True talent is revealed not through schooling but through painting.  I have a strong affection for abstract art, but also enjoy impressionism and mixed media works.  Recently I have begun experimenting with digital art and the response has been phenomenal!   I create something every single day!

Collectors rave about the quality of my work.  Each piece is produced using only the best quality paints, canvas, and mediums.  Every painting that I ship out is a piece I would hang in my own home.  My art is created for people with a true appreciation for both exceptional craftsmanship and high-end materials.

Art is not a luxury….it brings joy to the beholder.  It creates mood and atmosphere in homes and offices.  It completes every inner space.  Thank you for learning more about me.  I look forward to building a relationship with you!

  7. Hi Sharon,

  10. Where is the flower in your mouth? I love that photo with the flower. :) Is that your gorgeous painting in the back??? That is truly awesome! Nice meeting you in Internet-Person! <3

  11. Hi! I nominated you for The Versatile Blogger Award. Please get the badge at http://bit.ly/1c8sAYH and get more info. Have a great day. :)

  12. You should call yourself The Sensualist Photographer…

    • These days I call myself a “self marketing pro”;) Surprising how little of my actual job is photography and painting these days!

      • “Self marketing pro” is an apt description of the status you have elevated yourself to. You are clearly one of the most successful self-promoters I’ve seen (and while I envy your success at it, I also see lots of evidence of your consistent hard work at it).

        Artists and creative types who satisfy themselves with painting pretty pictures can’t hope to have much commercial success in a world where the internet has made SO MUCH great art available. I’m learning every day as I work to reinvent myself as a marketing guy (and that’s an uncomfortable transition for me).

        Best wishes for every continued success! – Mark

      • It wasn’t easy for me either Mark…I resisted Social Media for a few years as my natural state is to keep to myself and create. But it has been worth the effort! My best to you as you grow your business!

  13. What a lovely forum page. I’ll undoubtedly be back again. Please maintain writing!

  14. I love the colors in the picture above. The reds, the oranges…. GORGEOUS!

  15. nothing to fear but fear itself….your creativity is a gift use it…..we all have disabilities some are more visible…michael e dillon,m.d.(alias corey steele on reverbnation.com and engolfo perozoso on facebook

  40. thanks for visiting my sight, mi esposa is also an artist and her gallery is http://www.thebutterflygallery.com.

  41. I think your education shows in your work. The seeming simplicity of the design is belied by its sophistication as a textural and chromatic form. It doesn’t just seem like a wave/tube of a wave, it feels like one. The choice of scale and coloring are more than what someone without an eduction might not have conceived. There is just something inherent in the subtlety that makes me think you’ve been well-educated. I remember one of the first things photographers shot before they took classes. It was sunsets. This is not the equivalent of a painted sunset. It is a feeling. Love your work.

    • Thank you Mario…it is interesting indeed since my degree was focused on the commercial aspect of art. I did a lot of drawing and pen and ink renderings. Precise technical work. I did not create abstract art in school. Only as a wee child and starting just 11 years ago. :)

      • There isn’t a correlation necessarily in the medium you studied as in your exposure as to what constitutes art, experience in studio, where other students critique your work, the questions you might ask of yourself without knowing. Art is not a medium, per se, but ideas eloquently rended from an otherwise absence of knowing. While I am being presumptuous here, we do have painting in common as self-taught expressions of those ideas, I am not a great painter. I am not a great musician/composer, I am self-taught and each time it shows. My photography, however has greater refinement because I allowed myself to be influenced. “Commercial art traditionally includes designing books, advertisements of different products, signs, posters, and other displays to promote sale or acceptance of products, services, or ideas;” these expressions do not dismiss aesthetic sophistication. Often great ads are great ideas eloquently rendered.

      • I have just started with photography. I doubt I will take any classes as I just enjoy exploring and capturing and that is enough for me. My photography sells, so that lets me know it is “good enough” but perhaps not great. ;) I may never be great at photography, but that is o.k. with me. :) Cheers!

  42. Please take classes. There is so much fun in getting together with your kind.

  43. Many thanks for the follow. I hope you will return again soon and often. Your work is wonderful. Love the vivid colors. . . . .
