Meet Sharon Lynn Williams

My passion is helping artists to paint with their own individual voices rather than reproducing a photograph. The best way I have found to do this is by teaching a self critique process where we look at 3 stages of art creation: before you begin to paint, during your painting process, and at the end of the process.
“My goal and ambition is to bring beauty and peace into people’s homes through my art, and to offer the life-giving joy of creation to my art students.”
Meet Veronica Funk
Veronica Funk grew up in the most beautiful place in northern Manitoba, surrounded by the Churchill River and boreal forests. Though she didn’t receive formal art education in the north, she was taught traditional crafts by her neighborhood Cree grandmothers, such as weaving, beading, moccasin making and a little birch bark biting. She learned to draw by copying the Archie comics that were prevalent in her home as her mother is from South America and the comics helped her to learn English. Her father told her that the comics also inspired her name.
“This place north of 56, where I learned to survive in the wilderness as part of my public education, where we came together to celebrate the Winter Carnival, racing in snowshoes, baking bannock, watching the dog sled races, where we were raised to nurture nature, was a place that I never wanted to leave,” she recounts.
After moving to Alberta, she studied Art & Design at Red Deer College, then returned to Manitoba to apprentice with potters, stone sculptors and painters and spent a year creatively painting on a farm in Saskatchewan. She is currently continuing her studies through Thompson Rivers University with an emphasis in painting.

As an artist I’m all about SPACIOUS JOY, WITH EMOTION, WITH HUMOR, WITH LOVE…ALWAYS
I consider myself a contemporary mixed-media artist. Color inspires me and so too texture. It seems redundant to paint what I see, so painting what I feel describes my work perfectly.
