|br>Sharon DiGiulio is an award winning acrylic/collage artist. After receiving a Bachelor of Arts in Fine and Applied Arts at Central Michigan University, DiGiulio moved to Key West, Florida to pursue a career in the arts. She worked as a graphic artist and package designer for six years before relocating to Raleigh, North Carolina landing a position with the largest screen-printing company as the art director. Her passion lead her to Jerry’s Artarama as the event coordinator where she organizes workshops lead by internationally known artists from all over the country.
Heavily influenced by the talent surrounding her, DiGiulio now has no choice but to work in a mixed media fashion. "It seems I learn something new about a different medium weekly and I just have to try it! I dare myself to use every technique I can think of from transfers, to watercolor to basic drawing, and printmaking to encaustics, to painting and stitching in creating my acrylic collages. The choices are endless. Now my challenge is to put it all together with my collection of photos and make it work. I read a ton of books and pull from childhood experiences and memories to embellish my work."
