“Shari studied Graphic Design in Barrie and Toronto but returned to the area to start her career with a local printing company.  After a few years she decided to freelance as a Graphic Designer and enjoyed much success working for a number of businesses in SD&G.

In the last few years Shari’s focus has been on developing her painting skills, first with acrylics and more recently with oils. She has explored a lot of subject matter but her obsession has turned to objects. From vintage to everyday objects, she enjoys the challenge and the fun in trying to capture the object’s uniqueness.  Shari paints these “Portraits” at her home studio near Long Sault and recharges with a weekly visit to OBO Studios where there is no shortage of creative energy and shared inspiration!”
