Feature of the Week Ravens Bend FolkArt


This Week we would like to Introduce to you Sharon


In Sharon's own words:

My name is Sharon Wittke and I live in the beautiful Shawnee Hills of southernmost Illinois, and my studio window overlooks a peaceful pasture where longhorn cattle graze.

I begin each day with a paintbrush in my hand. I’m a self-taught decorative artist, and my painting style is a blend of naïve, narrative and folk art with a touch of whimsy thrown in for good measure.


Using acrylics, I paint my original designs on a variety of surfaces. Wooden bowls and plates, chairs, three legged stools, cheese boxes, and antique kitchen utensils are among my favorite items to decorate. I scour local antique and resale shops for odd or interesting items to paint. My favorite subjects are Halloween, Christmas, other holidays, and scenes of rural life.
