Sharon Hutchison lives with her husband, Durrell Jackson, and dog, Echo in Newport Beach, California.
Sharon Studied art at the California College of Art in the San Francisco Bay Area, earning a Bachelor of Fine Art degree in painting. In addition, she has taken various painting workshops, life drawing classes and has spent a summer of painting in Umbria, Italy.
Following graduation, Sharon backpacked throughout Europe visiting many museums viewing masterpieces of art and architecture. She continued on to travel into parts of North Africa and the Middle East, satiating some of her interests in other cultures and adventure, including a several months’ volunteer at a kibbutz in Isreal.
For the past 20 years, Sharon has undertaken a mural and decorative painting business, Sharon Hutchison Studio, consisting mostly private residences and some commercial venues. Although the bulk of her work is primarily based in Southern California her projects have taken her as far as Abu Dhabi in the United Arab Emirates.
Interspersed with her business, Sharon makes time to paint on canvas. She participates
in group shows, and displays her work in local showrooms and galleries. She loves to be inspired by beauty, whether in nature, museums and villas, or historical architecture. This enthusiasm combined with the challenges of painting is Sharon’s driving ambition.
