SHARON FOX CRANSTON
SCA, MPAC, PSA,
Sharon is a designated Master Pastelist member of Pastel Artists Canada (MPAC), a Signature member of the Society of Canadian Artists (SCA) and the Pastel Society of America (PSA).
Sharon’s preferred mediums are acrylic & pastel. Her impressionistic painting style retains the integrity of “the place” while still being loose enough in application to actively challenge the viewer to interpret the work for him or herself.
An avid plein air painter, her focus is on the texture, colour and rhythms of the rural and urban landscape.
Sharon particularly enjoys taking her art outdoors and has painted many of her works "en plein air" in Canada, France, Italy, the UK and USA.
Her work hangs in private and corporate collections both here and abroad.
