Phyllis Sharpe

Artists Statement:

My time in the studio is a form of spiritual practice; I find peace and serenity in painting. The hours at the easel deepen my connection to life that emerges with color and light onto the canvas. It is among my greatest joys to effectively communicate my experiences in the visual medium of painting. My hope is that my art pulls each viewer in, perhaps even revealing some of the intimate feelings I had while creating the piece. Painting also enables me to honor my inner child, and with each new work I’m able to capture facets of those early dreams from childhood on the farm as well as the new ones that have emerged throughout my adult years. Among the most pure of subjects, my landscape and waterscape work depicting the natural world has the potential to reawaken happy memories, inspire current insights, and spark dreams of future times. The gray and brown of the trees, the warm greens and beige of the land, the multi-colored spectrum reflected in the ocean, and the rich blue skies with their fluffy clouds evoke connections to Earth, this planet we call home, and to our deepest essence.
