Hi, I’m Sharon.
I’m so glad you’re here.
Sharon Hutchison is a contemporary painter living with her husband, Durrell Jackson and dog, Echo in Orange County, California. As a graduate of the California College of Art in the San Francisco Bay area, Sharon continued her education by studying in Italy, taking workshops and life drawing as well as traveling throughout Europe and the Middle East. Having worked for several decades in her decorative painting/mural business, Sharon applies and incorporates techniques of layering with paint store brushes and tools she had become so familiar with into her paintings. Influenced by Italian frescos, textile palettes and living on the coast are the main influences in Sharon’s work.
A few things I love...
It excites me how art pairs with interior design like wine pairs with food.
I'm drawn to nature's invitation to solitude and reflection.
I'm comforted by the heavy salty air of an overcast morning and how the light breezes through trees wakes up the moment.
I love how color is so compelling, personal and one of our greatest gifts in life.
