Sharon Lynn Williams afca, ipap
Sharon began her life as a painter in 1979. She is fluent in almost all of the art media, embracing the challenge of learning art in all its many languages. When Sharon is not painting, she continues her love of teaching, having taught for over 2 decades, and now travels throughout North America giving workshops on her painting techniques. She has produced 2 instructional DVD’s, as well as a book about her plein air oil painting. Sharon holds signature membership in the International Plein Air Painters (IPAP), and the Federation of Canadian Artists (AFCA). Her work is found in Alberta at the Leighton Centre and Palliser Art & Framing in Calgary; Lineham House Gallery in Okotoks, and online at ArtMatch.ca. Visit her on the internet at her website www.sharonlynnwilliams.com.
Sharon’s paintings reflect her interest in bold shape and colour. Her interpretations of the beauty around her, whether figurative, landscape, floral or their abstracted essence, as well as her vivid imagination make for an eclectic and varied body of work. Whether in her studio or on location, Sharon creates works that she hopes will reveal God's creative majesty. The viewer is encouraged to investigate the multitude of subtle layerings and colour effects in the paint, as well as the layers of meaning in her work.
