Sharon Goldman

Sharon Goldman, a native Floridian and Fine Arts graduate of the University of Florida had a long career in the advertising business as an Art Director. After raising three children (now college graduates) she started a new career focusing on painting, teaching art classes, and writing and illustrating children’s books. She has also co-authored a romance novel and a musical with her sister.

Sharon has been juried into more than 50 gallery shows including solo exhibitions, won numerous ribbons, and her art has been purchased by private collectors.

Sharon’s style can be described as painterly realism. Her unique images, cropping, and use of light and shadow are key elements of her paintings. Her colorful palette and design background help her envision her novel compositions. Working from her own original photographs, she paints in both acrylics and oils. Sharon strives to create work that captures the spirit of Florida. The creative process is what gets her going in the morning and sometimes keeps her up at night while thinking about her next idea.

Sharon and her husband Richard, a nature enthusiast, live in Ponte Vedra Beach, Florida. When time permits, he likes to fish in the backyard lagoon, while Sharon, phone in hand, is ready to capture the photo of his next giant bass. Of course, he throws it back.

Sharon has written, illustrated, and published two children’s books under her company Toolywoo Publishing:
