Artist / Personal Statement
haron Parker has been working professionally as an artist and art teacher since 1988. Her education at William and Mary in Fine Art and Education, along with workshops by artists Arne Westermann, Lori Putnam, Mary Todd Beam, Jan Ledbetter, Gloria Coker, Ken Wright, and Robin Poteet have provided a valuable foundation for her art career. Her art teaching career at Williamsburg Christian Academy included all grade levels, and she started their first Advanced Placement Studio Art Program for high school. Her time there brought her much joy and she treasures the many students who touched her life then and continue to now.

Seven years ago she had the privilege of helping to start a new gallery, New Town Art Gallery, and of devoting more time to creating her artwork in watercolor, mixed media, and most recently jewelry-making. New Town Art Gallery is now closed, and a new chapter in Sharon's art journey has started. Her latest gallery representation is at On the Hill Gallery in Yorktown, Virginia, as well as regional shows and exhibits in Richmond, VA and the Outer Banks of North Carolina. Sharon has also taught adults and youth in private lessons for many years. She taught adults, teens, and children for 15 years at the Williamsburg Contemporary Art Center (formerly This Century Art Gallery), and ran an Open Studio with Shirley Roby there for many years. Sharon and fellow artists/friends often meet to paint plein air. Completed in July of 2016, Sharon and eight other life- and love-affirming women artists completed the Nine Women Nine Months Project, which was on display at Sentara Regional Medical Center in Williamsburg and has traveled to other venues.
