As a young woman, traveling back and forth to Paris, I always wanted to paint. I am a visual person, and living abroad, every street corner, every face, every dog sitting at the feet of its master in a small cafe, was a painting waiting to happen. I loved working with acrylics: mixing colors, building textures, working with brushes, most especially with my fingers. My paintings are proudly displayed in homes and offices throughout the United States and Europe.
Back in New York, my painting stopped. I no longer had the luxury of space, and so a new idea was born. Abandoning my paints, tools, and canvas, I discovered the world of photo art, with apps, IPads and yes some degree of painting with my hands. I have named my new endeavor FOTO ART: "Creating Forever Memories."
My inspiration comes from the photos my clients send me to work on, To Me, a photograph represents a blank canvas, where my minds eye can create and recreate endless possibilities. Portraits, families, pets, children. Almost any subject can become a work of art, a keepsake, something that can be displayed, not tucked away in a drawer.
FOTO ART is applicable to WALL MOUNTED, CANVAS, NOTE CARDS, HOLIDAY CARDS, PHONE CASES
and is even being used by some as a new BANNER for their SOCIAL MEDIA, WEBSITES, etc. And as you can see it will put a smile on your face.
Send me your favorite high resolution photo and let's create a "forever memory" together! Foto Art, the perfect personalized, unique gift for WEDDINGS, and all SPECIAL OCCASIONS as well.

Original photo by Craig X Sotres . Sometimes a client just wants a portrait painted. sometimes they want more. When I look at a photo I see a blank canvas, a canvas that enables my eye to wander and imagine.......................
Here is where the journey begins. I get to study my subject. Who is she? What is she thinking, dreaming.....? I use paints to inspire color, Make her come alove!
For me, this is the exciting part! Here is where a theme comes into play, a change of location perhaps, leading to a story that captures the spirit, the essence of being.
Wow, Sharon. Amazing.

I am a professional photographer and recommend Sharon’s artwork to all my portrait clients. Her artwork gives people a “work of art” of themselves to forever cherish. A fantastic way to take advantage of a great portrait photo!

I am not one to ever be speechless but when I received my beautiful painting as my 50th birthday present, I was absolutely stunned.
Never have I seen such creativity and beauty come to life in a painting. I remember saying to Sharon, “thank you for making me look so beautiful”.
It was evident that Sharon poured her heart into that painting, and it was by far, one of the best gifts I have ever received.
