Living and working in Pennsylvania.
1943: Born in Granite City, Illinois.
“Art is entwined in my being. I think it always has been. As I explore a more free expression of my art, working with acrylics, I find that my art is taking on a life of its own. What I have in my head as a starting point, is soon overcome by my hand.”
Sharon Pierce McCullough, a self-taught artist, was born in Granite City, Illinois in 1943. Her original artwork and prints are displayed in homes, businesses, children’s hospitals and public buildings across the country.
“My work has progressed over the past 20 years, experimenting with prismacolor pencil, mixed media, collage, gouche, and now I am working primarily with acrylics. I love the juxtaposition of geometric shapes and other forms. Recently, my creative direction has led me towards painting with acrylics on large canvases, utilizing brushes, fingers, toes, rollers or anything that will perform as a tool. My current body of works, on paper, is titled “Simplicity” … merging the visual perception of what is seen and unseen, what is and what isn’t.”
Her paintings have some meaning relative to self, relationships and choices made in life.
