1/10/2020 - I was delighted to receive an Honorable Mention award in the Teachers/Professionals category for my abstract mixed media acrylic painting Tropical Explosion. This painting has a lot of texture due to the use of modeling paste and paper, as well as acrylic paint. I wanted something that screamed TROPICS and I think I got it. The original is available for purchase. See my website www.Sharon-Eng.Pixels.com for more information. Prints can also be purchased in a variety of sizes and finishes, as well as on many decor and other products.

Car dealers and retail stores have their End of the Year Inventory Reduction Sales, so why not artists?
Artists can accumulate too many canvases and finished paintings which take up valuable room in often small studios. After all, there is only so much wall space and closet space to store art. Such is my case. I do have art on exhibit at various brick and mortar galleries, but I need to clean house and start the new year fresh.
I am an award-winning exhibiting artist and my work is in collections across the country. Now you can add an original, signed piece to your collection at
50% off the retail price plus I’ll pay half of the shipping cost.
All art is unframed. Some are flat on canvas or paper and matted to the final overall size. Others are on gallery-wrapped canvas and the sides are painted so no frame is necessary to hang. All originals (plus some artist-purchased prints that are matted for framing and signed) can be seen at my “End of Year Clearance Sale” collection at my website www.Sharon-Eng.Pixels.com.
Keep in mind, too, that if you prefer a different size, all of these are available as prints through the website (sorry, these special orders aren’t on sale).
See something you like, just message me through my Facebook page https://www.facebook.com/sharonengart or from the Pixels website for more specific information about the painting and we’ll work out the details for your purchase.
Help me make room for new work in 2020!

I was delighted to learn that my acrylic painting Rising Mist and a Sunny Day took 3rd place at the Punta Gorda, Florida, Visual Arts Center exhibit Water, Water Everywhere in June. I have won there before and it's always an honor since there are so many fine artists represented.

Artist Sharon Eng's mixed media painting Blue Bayou was awarded a Merit Award by the North Port Art Center in February at the House of Blue Exhibit. The artist's 16 x 20 art depicts her vision of the wild swampy areas with thick forests and dark waters. The trees, created from torn papers, including from music sheets, and paint, are reflected in the lower portion representing the waters.
The original painting is available for sale and prints are available at her website https://fineartamerica.com/profiles/sharon-eng.html. The abstract image also translates well into other decorative products available at the Fine Art America site, including pillows and towels.

The long wait is over. I received notification yesterday that my photograph After the Ride has been accepted into the prestigious All Florida Exhibit at the Alliance for the Arts in Fort Myers, Florida. Out of 650 entries from throughout the state, only 60 or so were juried in. This is the second year that I have had a piece in the show. The exhibit runs from March 1 - 30.

North Port, Florida, artist Sharon Eng was honored with a proclamation from the Charlotte County (Florida) Board of County Commissioners for being the Charlotte County Arts and Humanities Council Artist of the Month for November.
Eng’s art was recently on exhibit at the Charlotte Arts Gallery in Town Center Mall in Port Charlotte, Florida. Her paintings and digitally painted photographs can also be seen at Creations at Fisherman’s Village in Punta Gorda, Florida, and beginning December 1 at Venice Island Gallery in Venice, Florida.
“If I had to categorize my style, I think ‘representational abstract’ might fit,” Eng says. “Whether it's in abstract photography or my mixed media paintings, I usually need to visualize something from the natural world - a landscape, beach scene, forest, etc.”
Eng’s photography and paintings are on her website at www.sharon-eng.pixels.com for purchase as prints in many sizes and finishes (now even on wood). She said her art can also be made into decorative pillows, shower curtains, and tote bags, as well as cell phone cases.
Eng is a member of the North Port Art Center, Visual Arts Center and Art Center of Venice and has won awards for her art at all three venues.

Several of Sharon Eng's original are pieces will be in a group exhibit at the new Charlotte Arts Gallery at the Port Charlotte Mall beginning October 4. The exhibit will go through November 8. The reception for the exhibit will be on Sunday, October 21, from 2 pm to 4 pm.
Eng categorizes her style as "representational abstract.” She explains that, in her paintings and abstract photographs, she usually needs to be able to visualize something from the natural world - a landscape, beach scene, forest, etc. Although she had a period where she deviated toward a more traditional style, she is returning lately to what she enjoys most – a more abstracted view of things.
For the most part, Eng is self-taught although she has attended workshops and classes occasionally. She was influenced early on by her mother-in-law, Fort Myers artist Pat Eng LaVigne, to begin exploring mixed media over 25 years ago. Prior to that photography was her creative medium - primarily abstract macro photography. Sometimes she now uses one of her photographs as the background of a painting and builds on it. Generally she creates landscapes and seascapes, but occasionally will end up with something a little different. Eng says she is now exploring the world of digital editing to enhance her photographs and create new images.
The artist works in a variety of media, including watercolor and acrylics, as well as mixed media. Most of her work is small to medium sizes with subjects varying as she travels and comes back filled with images to put to paper.
