I am full time professional artist known for Decometric murals, conceptual installations, vivid pastels, giant puppets, environmental designs, children’s programming and love of architecture.  As a Fine Arts major of sculpture and photography, I received a cum laude Bachelor of Arts degree from Brooklyn College, and a second degree in Color Theory from the New York School of Interior Design.

 

I taught at the Armory Art Center (15 years) and at Old School Square (16 years). As a well-known lecturer on the architectural stylings of Twentieth Century design, I am the  founding president of the historic preservation organization Art Deco Society of the Palm Beaches.  I enjoy public speaking and presenting power point presentations to large community audiences. As a public arts administrator and organizer, I work with groups of artists and volunteers to create enormous murals and public art installations.

 

My first book on the architecture of Palm Beach County, Art Deco of the Palm Beaches, has been published and released by Arcadia Publications in June 2007. The book contains 204 black and white images I photographed with captions and chapter introductions. My new book, Murals of the Palm Beaches has been awarded a Silver Medal by the State of Florida Book Awards (FBA) and will be the topic of a Palm Beach County Gov/TV episode of Inside History in the fall of 2019.

 

I was awarded the Muse Award for Educator of the Year in 2014 by the Palm Beach County Cultural Council. For more info visit www.BySharon.com, www.ArtDecoPB.org and www.ArtintheAlley.org …. hope to meet you soon!
