Constructing Hidden Emotions : Artist Spotlight on Sharon Wensel

Artist Bio: I studied advertising and design at Hussian School of Art in Philadelphia PA. for 1 1/2 yrs. After a painting class I felt that wasn’t for me. I felt I was a fine artist. I then transferred to the Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts. I left about a year later, after I met my husband. I took a brief hiatus of about 20 yrs. I focused on being a mother to my 2 beautiful sons and wife to my husband. I went back to school in 2013, Montgomery County Community College and received my associates in fine arts. You can find my work on Etsy ,Sharonwenselstudio, as well as in private collections throughout the country.

Artist Statement

When painting portraits I try to communicate hidden emotions with color and texture. I do this by using mixed media on varied surfaces.

What does “Gaze” mean to you & how do you connect it to your work?

I feel Gaze is what is going on behind the eyes. What has happened to create the gaze, a culmination of many years of emotions whether good, bad or both. The eyes truly are the windows of the soul.

  1. naturally like your web site however you need to take a look at the spelling on several of your posts. A number of them are rife with spelling problems and I find it very bothersome to tell the truth on the other hand I will surely come again again.
