“Seaside Clam diggers” by Sharon Johnson. Original oil on linen.
Sharon Johnson graduated with a BA in English Literature but art was a strong second major for her. She received numerous awards and a PEO scholarship for her representational drawing, painting, and calligraphy.
Art history also holds a strong fascination for Sharon Johnson, particularly purveyors of magical realism like Rosseau, Magritte, Grant Wood, Edward Hopper, and Georgia O’Keefe. Sharon’s intention is to create a happier and more colorful child-like universe.
