About

I have been blessed to live and paint on a quite old farmstead, surrounded by fields, for most of my life now.

I have always had a fascination with old farmsteads, especially the old farmhouses and barns found on them. Some of my fondest childhood memories are of the visits to my grandparent's remote Midwestern farm. Set down a very long lane, that eventually round around the old barn, horse pasture, granary, crib, machine shed, chicken house, to end up at their old farmhouse with a white picket fence in the yard beyond. The crochet set would be on the lawn and Grandma would have one of her homemade pies waiting on the kitchen counter. A little bit of heaven here on earth, it felt to me back then!

As far back as I can remember, I always wanted to live in the country like them. My husband, sons and myself, live in old farmhouse with a red barn,…

As far back as I can remember, I always wanted to live in the country like them. My husband, sons and myself, live in old farmhouse with a red barn, that are a great inspiration for what I paint. I hope to share the sense of peace and happiness that I have when working on my contemporary, country landscape paintings.

I received a Bachelors of Fine Arts Degree. My original landscape paintings are in private collections throughout the U.S.A. as well as in : Canada, France, Iceland, Portugal, Belgium, England, Ireland, Scotland, Italy, Japan, Brazil, Zimbabwe, and Australia.

I am happy to have my paintings used as cover art on several books now: Praying with your Whole Heart, Three Ways of Loving God, and a cook book by Cinagro Farm. and on the the classical music CD "Wingra Plays Dvorak". An article on my landscape paintings was on the online art magazine “Empty Easel”.

I hope that you will enjoy my original art work. If you have any questions and/or are interested in a commissioned piece, just let me know and I will be glad to help! My paintings have been described as having an intriguing peacefulness, in their quiet simplicity.

Best wishes,


Sharon
