Day 347:Sharon Stelluto
Through my work I capture the visual representations of the subtle energies of nature and universal life force. Inspired by the natural world, the human form, botanical life, geological references and galactic imagery, I infuse my work with a sense of connection to all that is.
Being a long time student of yoga and a healing practitioner for over ten years, I blend my work with a connection to energy awareness, higher consciousness and the potential that lies within each individual as their truest self.
I believe art can inspire people on subtle levels to create a new world, a new hope for the future and a new way of being in connection to your self.
Art speaks the truths untold by a society and is often a representation of where we currently reside or hope to transcend to as a culture.
Sharon Stelluto was born in 1981 in New Jersey. She spent her adolescent years in Charlotte, North Carolina with the opportunity to apprentice with professional figure painter, Andrew Braitman. She learned the subtleties of figure drawing and painting at a young age. After moving back to the Northeast for art school in New York, she still remained in New York for many years while helping to manage CoSM, an art retreat center in the Hudson Valley of New York, directed by visionary artists Alex and Allyson Grey. There she studied under the guidance of many internationally known artists including Alex and Allyson themselves. She created many large scale art installations during her time at CoSM and developed as a live painter during events at the center.
Sharon has exhibited her work nationally with a solo show in New York City and other various locations around the U.S.
Since her move to the desert of the southwest, she has painted a mural in the downtown Roosevelt Arts district and shared her work as a live painter at many events and festivals.
She also co-creates a weekly podcast, called Inner Monologue, with her partner based on mental health and mindfulness. With their organization RISE Phoenix, RISE standing for Revolution Inspired by Self Evolution, they feature many guests on their show to share their story of trial and triumph of life on earth.
Sharon creates an intuitive artwork for each episode based on the guest and conversation. You may view her Inner Monologue podcast artwork on their website and listen to archives of the show through the site or on iTunes. Sharon is available for true self portrait commissions, regular commissions and murals. You may learn more about her portrait commissions through her site and contact her directly for inquiries.
