I hope you will enjoy viewing my vision of the quiet, rural landscape of the American Heartland. I live and paint on an old farmstead in the Midwestern Heartland, and my contemporary rural landscapes are painted simply from the heart. The sides of the canvas are painted dark brown to match the field and the work comes ready to hang.

Getting to Know Sharon

Sharon France has many fond childhood memories of visits to her grandparents’ remote Midwestern farm. She now lives on her own farmstead with her family where she paints the beauty around her. Sharon found inspiration in the work of Hudson River School Artists, Minimalists, Tonalists and Realists. When she’s not painting, she loves to hike. She currently lives in Illinois. Fun fact: her homestead includes a number of pet birds like heritage turkeys, chickens, ducks and tiny finches.
