* Shari has known that she was an artist since age 5, when her favorite toy was a box of 72 Crayola crayons. She used them to make a drawing that won first place in the New York City Public School award for Kindergartners. Later, she attended Michigan State University where she majored in photography, launched a photographic art gallery, and exhibited in many art and photo shows. She went to University of Colorado grad school for photography.
Her current work combines photographic and drawing elements using papers, paints and collage pieces as well as encaustic (lost wax) techniques.
Her work has shown:
LightFantastic Gallery, East Lansing, MI, Cafe Harmonie, Detroit, MI, Core Art Gallery, Denver, CO, Access Gallery, Denver, Co,, Art Students League Of Denver, Boulder Museum of Contemporary Art, the Walker Museum of Fine Art and others
The small series of 6X6 pieces shown at Conservatrice are saucy, sassy collages, "Floral Beauties" 1 through 4. They are made of vintage papers, photos, painted and drawn elements on wooden sub-traits.
