Sharon is a contemporary San Francisco Bay Area visual artist who lives in Oakland, California. Her art reflects the influence of masters of sensual painting like Matisse, Van Gogh, and Gauguin. In addition, contemporary and traditional arts from her travels around the world play into her artistic development and styles. Hudson's art includes expressionistic painterly figures in pastel, graphite, and charcoal; playful figures in collages of decorative patterns; realistic figures and portraits; still lifes and abstracts in acrylic and oil paint; and mixed media abstract (non-objective) artworks with multiple layers of allover patterns.
