Sharon has chosen watercolor for the luminous colors and fluidity of the medium. She is especially interested in the interplay of light and shadow. Her subject matter includes portraits, still lifes, landscapes and florals, with a concentration on Dubuque and the surrounding countryside. Recently Sharon has begun using oil and acrylic which she finds to be challenging and fun.
