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.
