SHARON NELSON-BIANCO - PROFESSIONAL ARTIST
CELEBRATE COLOR! Color is the energy which radiates in a painting. Color can move you, thrill you, calm you and make you feel life is wonderful.
For many years I was a Midwesterner but now I am a southern artist living in beautiful tropical Florida, an area with many variations in terrain and inhabitants. We have wetlands, ocean, woodlands, farmlands, beautiful unique flowers, birds, exotic alligators and manatees. Nature is a magic combination of beauty and mystery and provides wonderful painting opportunities.
Life is full of mysteries and challenges and I believe in providence, luck, curiosity and taking advantage of opportunities to maximize my creativity. Some ideas come from crazy dreams, a memory or even a word. Color is the unifying element in my artwork.
Art satisfies my love of adventure, creativity and boldness. Sometimes you win and sometimes you lose but gee, itâ€™s a fun time. Andâ€¦there are always those tantalizing mysteries to solve.
