Artist's Statement

"Come meet with me and dance with me and share
in this moment that is real and alive!" ~ Shera

Hi there! I am an abstract expressionist artist whose work is inspired by my passion for dreamy, sun-drenched coastal colors, magical moments, travel, soulful connections and the sea.For me the journey of painting is like a dance filled with mystery and spontaneous movements thatt respond to the calling of my heart and soul.Seeing a blank canvas as a playground filled with expansion, adventure and freedom I begin my creative process with music playing ready for an unchoreographed dance with the unknown. From there I allow the energy of the moment, my curiosity and a sense
of abandon to guide my way.
I believe in “romancing life” and “having fun with it” and with the promise of new discoveries as my siren song I find myself forever being drawn onwards in art and in life.
What's around the next corner? I'm not sure!
But I'm excited to find out and have you on this journey with me!

Romancing the Moment

coastal inspired abstract art

I am admittedly an incurable romantic. As an artist I am forever seeking to experience the beautiful, magical moments of life. To immerse myself in them and drink them in. To breathe life into life, connecting through my emotions and my curious, playful heart. The romancing of those moments often comes through as I enter into the creative process. This is an ongoing collection.

Garden Dancing

The image continues around the sides of these paintings on 1.5 inch deep gallery wrapped canvas. They easily stand on their own making them perfect for styling a shelf or end table.
