About the artist
Sharon Rose Moon was born in Pennsylvania, but considers herself a native Floridian after living in the state for 45 years, raising her daughters here and enjoying her grandchildren and great grandsons in the St. Augustine area.
After 35 years as a successful tax accountant, Sharon recently returned to her art and her passion for painting, attracted by the ease of application and brilliant colors of acrylic media. I painted for more than 40 years. Starting out as a hobby and evolving into learning techniques from a private art teacher.
My husband, George and I have acquired a modest collection of art by local artists, including Beau Redmond and Wendy Tatter, along with pieces by Marc Clauzade, Romero Britto and Peter Max. These paintings are my inspiration, along with art by the great masters I’ve been privileged to see in many of the world’s finest museums during our travels. The most fascinating museums I was able to visit recently are Gaudi's home, Sagrada Familia in Barcelona, Spain and the Dali museum in Figueres, Spain.
'My painting is an attempt to bring to my canvases some of the fabulous places and images I’ve seen in my life for others to share and enjoy.”
