Sharon's brightly colored images are inspired from the beach and garden creating both real and imaginary. "There's a serenity and peacefulness about the color of blue that I love to capture in my paintings, giving them an expression of freshness and spontaneity." Sharon's style lies between realism and impressionistic, realistic, but not photographic.
