Reflections on Simplicity
A Path To Community
Theresa Sharrar is an artist from Silverton, Oregon, where she lives surrounded by nature with her family, animals and gardens. I long to express the beauty and magic I feel from the earth. Each painting is like giving birth and I love it into being. About the front cover oil painting Urban Indian Girl she says it is an image that grew over a period of years. There was no preconceived plan for it. Along with having an artist friend model, I used a dream I had about big dark buildings looming overhead. These elements combined have created for me a work portraying strength and hope amidst destruction and despair.
Sharrars work can be seen at Lunaria
Gallery in Silverton, an artists co-op of which she is a member.
