ABOUT THE ARTIST:
Purpose Driven Art.That’s what this artist likes to think of her work as.It wasn’t always like that.Being a people pleaser, Sheral admits she painted what “she thought” would be acceptable to everyone else. She sold art, but the problem was, Sheral didn’t like her art, and wouldn’t consider putting her own art in her home.Too many voices of other artists and friends got in the way of her creating what she knew was inside of her longing to come out, something she knew God had put inside of her.
Sheral decided to shut out all voices, except for One.She asked God to be her partner and to only hear His voice, and to trust herself, knowing that God had given the art of painting as her God given purpose.
That’s why the first piece she painted with God as her partner is called “Freedom”.Freedom is something this artist wants to inspire for everyone, no matter your age, education or experience…find your Freedom of self expression. Sheral has been known to paint with her fingers, throw sand on the canvas, crushed sea shells, bit of glass and anything else that comes to her mind. Sheral is self-taught, paints with emotion, abandon, feeling the music she is always playing and puts that on canvas.
