After earning her Fine Art degree in painting in 1984, Sharon continued to use her creative gifts and share them with other through her own artworks and teaching others the joys of experiencing creative expression through art. She has worked with children, adults and developmentally disabled adults. Sharon works in a variety of media including acrylics, watercolor, collage, clay and metal. Depending on the season, you may find her working outside on clay pieces or firmly planted at the drawing table assembling pieces of her hand painted paper into a collage. Her artistic path has given her the ability to see the world in an all encompassing expression of the creative human spirit. Sharon hopes that she can help others open themselves to this experience through her art and teaching. Sharon Bloom currently works as an art teacher for grades K – 8 in Vacaville, CA.
