Artist Sharon Fernandes
Sharon Fernandes hails from the high hills of Albany, New York where she operated a custom frame shop and gallery for 30 years alongside her husband. At the turn of the century she turned her attentions to fulfilling her lifelong dream of painting.
Sharon explored with large abstracts and vibrant landscapes. These works reflected her love of nature, gardens and the plays of light and shadow.
She offered her works to the public in the gallery and found supportive encouragement.
In 2001, after 9/11, Sharon painted Beacon of Hope.
This painting was ultimately selected by The New York State Museum for inclusion in its travelling 9/11 exhibit honoring the tragedy of that day.
In 2013, she moved to Florida where she continues to indulge her love of flowers with year round gardening.
Her artistic works convey her love of the bounty of flowering plants found growing upon Floridian soil.
She brings ‘Old Florida’ back-road scenes with the marvelous trees, pasturelands and old buildings. She is captivated by Florida’s endless sparking sunlight and glorious rain showers that bathe landscape in luminous color and glowing light.
