Self taught abstract and figuritive painter living in San Antonio, TX.
Shari Upton is a self taught Texas native and freelance artist. She has made great strides to share her art talents locally and grow within the art industry.
Shari’s passion for art stems from her life experience. In her opinion, we all have art to share. She has overcome many obstacles as a woman and single mother. Shari uses art to share her story. Her mere hope is that by sharing her story she is able to uplift and empower those experiencing similar obstacles to never give up, and keep going. Through art her motto is, “Life is art, we are all just trying to figure it out, and create a life worth living.”
Her work is abstract and each piece tells a unique story. Every stroke is filled with intuition, passion, and purpose. She uses bold elements to drive each narrative. Black and white hues are used to add balance and flow. Even though her work is abstract, certain facial features are painted realistic to draw attention. Each work of art has a message. Symbolism is how she creates her story. This allows the viewer dig deeper within themselves to relate. She continues to create one of a kind pieces and hopes to inspire others to follow their soul purpose.
