Showing September & October
A Savannah, Georgia native, Sharon has served the community for over thirty years with her drawings and paintings. Lovely homes and vibrant gardens have graced her easel as she records the unique architecture of the South. The thirtieth anniversary of Historic Savannah Foundation was celebrated with the unveiling of her rendition of the Old City Market. In 1995, Savannah News Press honored her as “Savannah’s Best Artist.” Creating Loafing renewed this honor by naming her “Best Local Artist” in 2001.
Sharon has received countless commissions and participated in a myriad of one-man and group shows with numerous awards and honors. In 2008, she was commissioned by the City of Savannah to produce a print entitled, Beauty on the Bay, to be the official gift to dignitaries visiting the city. The original painting of city hall was purchased by the city.
Always exploring new avenues, Sharon is a member of the Society of Children’s Book Writers and Illustrators. She wrote and illustrated Patience and the Flower Girl, an entertaining picture book about a reluctant flower girl and her unique relationship with a wedding dove, named Patience.
As a graduate of the University of Georgia, Sharon holds a Master of Art Education and from Syracuse University, a Master of Fine Arts in Illustration. Ms. Saseen has taught in both public and private school classrooms. Currently, she travels and is a Workshop Presenter, instructing adults in abstract design and painting techniques.
She continues to welcome new challenges in her artistic career. In Savannah, her work can be viewed at the Signature Gallery, 912-233-3082 in City Market, 303 West St. Julian Street, Savannah, GA, 31401 and Gallery 209, 209 East River Street, Savannah, GA, 31401.
