I am delighted to introduce the work of Sharon Wolpoff in my new Artist Watch column at the online arts magazine Escape Into Life.

Sharon, who began her art training at age 5, has a master's of fine arts degree in painting from American University, Washington, D.C., and has also studied fine jewelry design, tapestry weaving, beadwork, and printmaking. In addition, she is a skilled hands-on healer. A native of Washington, D.C., she maintains her studio in Kensington, Maryland.

You'll find in today's Artist Watch column eight images of Sharon's paintings as well as Sharon's Artist Statement and biography. The images are all selected from Sharon's upcoming exhibition at the National Institutes of Health, "Sacred Thresholds & Other Spaces: Glimpses of Italy"; their appearance at EIL marks their first showing anywhere.
