Philadelphia-born artist Sharon Daugherty creates paintings that embrace impressionism, expressionism and abstraction from her home in Georgia, U.S.A.

The artist recalls always having a love for art, sketching and drawing everything that she saw around her city and neighbourhood while she was a child. She went on to study art in high school before losing her father, and, simultaneously, her passion for her craft. 20 years later, then married with children and working as writer in corporate America, she was surprised with the birthday gift that sparked her talent for painting again – an art set. The rest, as they say, is history!

Queens

“The years without my art gave birth to who I truly am an artist. I went to school, explored, met my incredible soul mate and had my beautiful babies. They filled my heart and everything I saw, did, tasted, experienced, and every person I met informed and inspired what I paint now,” says the artist.

Daugherty is now represented by two art galleries and has sold works to buyers across the globe. Dealing in a range of subject matter – her favourite subjects are city life, nature, and women, in all of their forms – she paints to the melodic stylings of Erykah Badu and classic Jazz singers (though she admits having to listen to hard rock to occasionally push through artists’ block).

Perfect Day

Bright colours and sweeping brushstrokes can often been seen in her works, yet she is equally adept at utilising a subtle colour palette. She uses a palette knife and her own brush techniques to communicate the energy, movement, or passion of the subject, thus creating works of art that can truly connect with their viewers.

“Painting is meditation for me. I go inside myself and speak from my soul on the canvas, releasing my emotions in shape and color. I honour being able to tell the world who I am and what I think in a voice that is uniquely mine and watching other people receive my work in a way that resonates personally with them. It is a blessing.”
