When asked about the inspiration behind this expressionist portrait, artist Sharon Sieben replied, "Is she in agreement, or about to present an alternative?" Sharon explains that she does't think about what people should know. Instead, she is interested to learn what they see and the story the art creates for them. "It's often different than what I had in mind when I painted the piece," she says.

Getting to Know Sharon

Sharon Sieben prefers working in a loose, fluid technique and finds inspiration in the most unexpected things. Her parents bought her a set of oil paints when she was ten years old and it sparked her love of art. She especially admires the work of Impressionist artists such as Paul Cezanne because of how they broke tradition. When she's not making art, she enjoys reading and playing classical guitar and piano. She currently lives in Arizona.
