Sharon Jiskra Brooks is an artist originally from Chicago, IL now living in Indianapolis, IN. Sharon works primarily in Oils and Acrylics. Growing up with a father who was a professional photographer, she was immersed in the arts at an early age. Her paintings embrace the city life as well as many aspects of the rural life that surround her home now. Sharon's style of painting leans toward an impressionistic style with a contemporary approach and subject matter. Many of her pieces are created alla prima. When time permits she also enjoys painting outdoors (plein air). Her degree in Fine Arts from Ball State University and her studies abroad in Europe has allowed her to appreciate the arts on a deeper level.
