Sharon Giles, Irving TX Member Since March 2008 Artist Statement Sharon Giles is a Texas artist, native to the DFW area. She also serves as the webmaster for two art sites: Irving Art Association (http://irvingart.org) and ArtGroupsDFW (http://artgroupsdfw.com), a site devoted to art activities of the 60+ nonprofit artist groups in the area. Her interests encompass all media, but she does admit to a preference for watercolor’s unpredictability. Sharon often celebrates the beauties of nature in her paintings. Her style is either impressionistic or abstract with intricate patterns, but always with lots of lush color and energy.
