Hi, I’m Sharon.
I’m so glad you’re here.
Sharon Hutchison is a contemporary painter with a Bachelor of Fine Art in painting from the California College of Art. She ran a mural and decorative painting business for several decades, working with prominent Southern California designers in the luxury home and commercial industries.
After graduating from college, Sharon ventured to Europe to view museums and architecture and traveled on to the Middle East eventually working on a kibbutz in Israel. She continued with her education in Italy while taking workshops in plein air, life drawing, and painting.
Sharon derives her work from each interim, including traditional and abstract expressionist methods of college education, building of transparent layers of paint for large scale formats in her mural business, and approaches cultivated from various workshops and instructors.
Inspired by her travels, Italian frescos, relationships with designers, textile palettes and living in coastal California, Sharon continues to challenge herself to try new things while garnering from her own experience.
Sharon resides in Orange County, California with her husband and dog enjoying walks on the beach, hiking in the hills, family and friendship get togethers and attending cultural events.
