Artist Sharon Bradshaw

Sharon Bradshaw

Sharon relocated to Bakersville NC from Chattanooga TN with her husband in 2011. She received a BA in English from Appalachian State University in 1967 and briefly taught school before entering the social work profession. She became interested in art in 1997, studied under several Chattanooga artists and facilitated a weekly Life Drawing workshop there for thirteen years. Her primary focus is on figures and portraits in charcoal, pastel or aux trois crayons. She has entered her work in shows in the Chattanooga area and some can be found in private collections. Although her efforts are essentially recreational, she has accepted commissions from time to time.
