Shari Lacy is an artist with a small home studio in Franklin, TN. A graduate of Miami University/Oxford, OH’s Fine Arts program, she is a life-long and college trained artist yet primarily a self taught painter. Much of what she has learned comes from her interaction and observation of people and life in general and other art specifically. She loves to experiment with natural tones as well as colors, sketches, textures and acrylics, and developed some of her techniques by taking a variety of different classes throughout the years.
Primarily working with textured mediums and acrylics on canvas and wood, you’ll also find a watercolor and/or sketch sneaking their way into her portfolio every now and then. She is very intrigued by the surface and edges of the canvas and how different pressures, paint thickness, brush sizes, etc. can bring out different emotions in a painting. She has always been fascinated by the creative process; one stroke leading to the next, one sketch leading to another, all finding themselves to be an important part of that finished puzzle called a piece of art.
Shari owns PR company and has taken on creative design projects and commissioned work for years. She’s also an avid writer, so she makes every attempt possible to marry her love of words and art. Some of her pieces include some sort of inspirational word or quote. She loves to study artists of all styles, but searches for the works of those with a similar free-handed touch.
Her work can be found in private collections in Tennessee, Florida, Ohio, California, Missouri, Colorado, and Arkansas as well as the permanent collection of Brentwood Academy (Brentwood, TN), and at OccuSure/Franklin, TN, GracePointe Church (Franklin, TN), Artistry spasalon (Franklin, TN) and more.
