About Sharyl Noday
Art The Silent Healer™ was founded by Sharyl Noday in Los Angeles in 1990. A California native, Sharyl's paintings explore the archetypical realms of the unconscious with a focus on revealing the unseen. As stated by Carl Jung, your vision will become clear only when you can look into your own heart. Who looks outside, dreams; who looks inside awakes. Sharyl Noday is a artist born in Southern California where she obtained her first degree in fine art, with a focus in photography from Art Center College of Design in Pasadena. She went on to become LA's first female assistant working with the distinguished Matthew Rolston. She soon opened her one and only photography studio on Hollywood & Vine. Her photography has been published worldwide with recognition in Brazil, Germany, England, Paris, holding 7 Key Art Awards, and numerous magazine / album covers. From early on in life, Sharyl has had a passion for the mystical and a unwavering commitment to spirituality. She has deep understanding of metaphysical research, the subconscious, healing and universal communications. With an overwhelming desire to paint, a location move to Chicago, Sharyl embraced a life long dream to studying painting at the Art Institute of Chicago and the Historic Palette & Chisel. Her paintings are received by what she calls cosmic inspirational downloads, thus combining mystical and social iconography to express what is felt. Sharyl seeks to weave a story within her art creating a polarizing unity of divinity. She has participated in over 50 juried group exhibitions. Her paintings have been featured on book covers and magazines with collectors throughout the US and abroad. She has appeared on several guest radio shows illuminating visionary art. Sharyl's art has been twice juried by James Rondeau, Curator of Contemporary Art at the Art Institute of Chicago. She has been featured in galleries and publications globally with a newly released short film, "The Voices of Crystal Skull Consciousness". I am inspired by life itself. In all of its forms, diversities. I see myself as a painter/journalist who makes visual commentary on social and spiritual ideas channeled to humanity and the impact this on people in the 21st century. I believe I am capturing emotions, feelings, a sense of mood through gesture, colors and texture. I am in love with narration, stories of the the Human Spirit, and beyond. The Unknown. I use color, exaggerated figures of the archetypical realms and brush work to create movement. It is my desire the viewer will feel a sense of movement, from one place to another. To be uplifted. I hope it is unconditional love.
