The Inside Story ~ Sharron Schoenfeld

I do not restrict myself to any one subject, colour palette or painting technique.  Abstract, realist, mixed media, urban settings, northern lake scenery, prairie grasslands and still life all interest me.  I like to switch back and forth as inspiration comes.  When I see a subject that inspires me like the quietness of landscapes or the charm of character homes, I want to paint them and recreate the colour, space and light that I see. 

The manner in which I perceive the world around me has developed through the various stages of my life.  Endless hours spent playing in the small wooded areas near my childhood home, summers spent on a farm, and presently exploring the lakes and boreal forest in northern Saskatchewan have all impacted how I see the world today and in turn how I approach my art.  I am convinced that everything I see, even the everyday ordinary things, can be transformed with paint to be extra ordinary.
