Sharlie Sudduth

I waited to start painting seriously until I retired and became a grandmother. I have been painting for 12 years and am currently a member of the Providence Art Club, The Westport Art Group and the Marion Art Center and have paintings in oil and watercolor of landscapes and seascapes wherever I have traveled.

I started off taking classes at RISD and workshops with Paul George and Charles Reid.

I show my work at Collier’s Gallery in Mattapoisett and have had shows at the Marion Art Center and the Providence Art Club.

Artist’s Statement

I start painting with a feeling of beauty about the places I am in and just enjoy the process of drawing and finding my way into what I think I want to paint. Often I discover something more as I go along doing the painting. I settle in, feeling the sun and the wind, often losing a sense of time and myself as in a meditation.

I travel to Europe often with painting groups and find settling in a town is a lovely way to see and sense the way others live and enjoy painting these beautiful places.

My paintings tell stories and reflect the feelings of the places I paint.
