I was born in Rhode Island, raised in South Carolina, moved to Massachusetts, and now back to RI! My husband and I have traveled from the South to the West and even to Alaska. This has given me great opportunity to paint the country-side.
I have been drawing/painting since childhood. With an Assoc. in Art Degree, learning from art courses, studying from the Master's, reading, and observing people and nature: I am producing pleasurable art. I am presently learning from a NZ artist Richard Robinson. But my gift is first and foremost a gift from God. I work in most mediums, but my favorite because of the fluidity, would be oil. I have enjoyed instructing elementary children, and high school kids in art as well.
Commissions are done in a realistically/impressionistic way. I have recently added photography to my art genre, since it is a very important part of the painting process! It is also very much fun. My paintings are taken from places my husband and myself have visited. Presently, painting from Alaska reference shots and whatever is amazing to my senses.
"I want to capture a feeling, the light, and a sense of being there - when I am inspired by a moment in nature, special person(s) or pet(s), or place in time." I love painting portraits of children as well as adults and animals! You can find more of my work on Sharon-Casavant.artistwebsites.com
