About Sharon Pierce McCullough

Sharon Pierce McCullough (b. 1943 Granite City, IL)
Multidisciplinary artist. Experimental/ Intuitive practice includes Abstract paintings and narrative sculptures, often working in series. Her use of vivid colors has always been one of the most striking aspects of her work. Her paintings reflect meaning relative to self, relationships and choices one makes in life. Her sculptures, reflective of her love of simplicity, make use of ordinary and recycled materials to create unique, organic pieces of art. An underlying thread of “fun” has always permeated her works.

There is a spontaneity to her work as she explores the relationship of positive and negative space, color and form. Her original artwork has been collected and displayed in private homes, businesses, children’s hospitals and public buildings across the country.

Internationally recognized Artist, published Children's Book author and illustrator, How-To author and Designer.
