My passion is helping artists to paint with their own individual voices rather than reproducing a photograph. The best way I have found to do this is by teaching a self critique process where we look at 3 stages of art creation: before you begin to paint, during your painting process, and at the end of the process.

ā€œMy goal and ambition is to bring beauty and peace into peopleā€™s homes through my art, and to offer the life-giving joy of creation to my art students.ā€

About The Artist

Artwork by Sharon Lynn Williams

I have been passionately painting in diverse media and subjects for the last 35 years, and have earned signature status in the Federation of Canadian Artists (AFCA) and the International Plein Air Painters (IPAP). My art is about my love for the landscape, ļ¬ltered through my extensive background of color and design, to express the joy and freedom I ļ¬nd in the subject. After a long studio career, I began to paint ā€˜en plein airā€™ (outside in front of the scene) in order to truly understand the way light plays on the landscape. I was able to really absorb myself in it, not only the visual input but also through my other senses. The feel of the breeze, the smell of the earth and foliage, and the sounds of nature were also able to be captured within my work, and that made all the difference.

My experience on the land was by now in my soul, and I felt the freedom to begin to express myself in less representational ways. Over the last four years, I began to seek a more personal and contemporary expression. That experimentation began in the studio using acrylic paint for its quick-drying and ease of radical shifts in direction. The new aesthetic that I have developed focuses on a limited amount of very interesting shapes; strong decisive brush marks; inventive, pushed, and gradated color; ļ¬‚attening of the picture plane; pattern, and strong value contrasts.

My work can be seen in person at the Leighton Art Centre and Lineham House Galleries.
