Sharon enjoyed careers in the arts and education in Washington, DC before retiring to this area with her late husband, Anthony, a few years ago. She earned a BFA in Design with minors in Art History and Education at Howard University, Washington, DC. After graduation, Sharon worked at the National Gallery of Art and the National Endowment for the Arts. Later, a Masters Degree in Library Science led to a rewarding career with the DC Public Schools as a School Library Media Specialist.
Sharon is a board member of the Waccamaw Arts and Crafts Guild, a member of the Seacoast Artists Guild, and the Colored Pencil Society of America. Her paintings, drawings, and jewelry reflect her love of the culture and scenic beauty of this area and can be seen at various local art festivals and venues. Sharon’s paintings and drawings are displayed at the Seacoast Artists Gallery (The Market Common, Myrtle Beach, SC), the William Miller Studios & Fine Art Gallery (Myrtle Beach, SC), and in private collections and businesses.
“I enjoy paintings, portraits, and figurative images and drawings in oil, colored pencil, charcoal, or graphite. My artwork has been featured in special exhibits, and I have received awards from juried and judged shows.”
