Indiana born artist, Sharon Sieben, currently resides in Mesa Arizona. When she works at her easel she realizes that this act is a form of communication with others (prospective viewers) as well as a dialog between herself and her inner self. She begins a piece by knowing what the subject matter will be, and eagerly waits to see what she is going to reveal about it, Oftenf making twists and turns that she did not anticipate. She knows a piece is done when there is nothing more to say and she is filled with a sense of discovery.
She is a very passionate, prolific painter. Having traveled extensively, she feels this world view influences her art perspective and provokes much of her inspiration.
Sharon states that she prefers working with oils, and often incorporates other materials and mediums, such as gouache and acrylics for special textures and interest.
