Sharon Suess, local artist and writer, is known for her playful approach to creativity. Her style varies depending on what inspires her at the moment. She has created intricate pen and ink drawings; watercolor landscapes and trees; fun, colorful mixed media paintings; fine tip marker and colored pencil illustrations, detailed pencil portraits, realistic and imaginative acrylic paintings, and whatever else catches her attention.
She teaches watercolor to “People Who Don’t Paint”, providing them with inspiration and confidence. Sharon has designed many books, including one of her own, a children’s book about a little girl who needs to clean her room (The Mean Green Cleaning Machine).
Sharon is inspired by the peace and spirit of the Catskill Mountains that surround her. She is a retired graphic designer and has lived in Halcottsville with her family since 1979.
