About Sharon Gross
As an artist I express my thoughts visually. I enjoy simple pleasures in life, a flower, a favorite antique bowl, or an old house set back in a field. These often become an inspiration for my art.
I am a printmaker. I create prints by carving strong lines and shapes into a linoleum block to illustrate the design. Very often I combine stamping, printing with cardboard and leaves, as well as, collage to my prints. This creates a layered and textured surface.
Many of my printmaking skills are self-taught and others have been acquired in classes and workshops over the years. I still get a thrill each time I carve an image, ink the block and a finally see the print appear for the first time.
