Sharon Lynn Williams is a painter and teacher from Calgary and is a member of the Alberta Society of Artists and Federation of Canadian Artists.
Sharon has also been happily exploring mixed-media for over 15 years, and her mantra is “What would happen if…” The excitement of working through chaos to order is invigorating and creates a dialogue between the work and the artist. Sharon enjoys working with bold colour, line and texture. Her work is formed by the landscapes that she paints en plein air.
Sharon began painting oils 'en plein air' (in the fresh air) as she longed to escape the confines of her studio and connect once again with nature. In her plein air work she tries to capture what interests her the most in a scene and put it into an compelling design; focusing on simplifying shapes and filling them with interesting colour. Sharon’s desire is that her paintings will transport the viewer into the pictorial world to connect with the majesty of Nature, as she herself has done.
