About the Artist

Sharon has been painting since she was nine. She studied art at the Houston Museum of Fine Arts and obtained a BFA from the University of Houston. Her work is signed with her middle name LOY.

Art is a diary of her life experiences thus making it eclectic and not of one genre. Each piece is a thought, a memory, or an experience. She always has a camera with her because the instant something catches her eye, she records it so that one day it will appear in one of her paintings. Recent works are focused on Central Texas views.

When she starts painting, she has an idea of what the piece will look like; however, once paint is applied to the canvas it takes on its own direction and personality. She uses Golden Acrylics because they have the most brilliant colors and the longest canvas life. Each piece is varnished with a matte or gloss glaze, which enables soft cloth cleaning and UV protection.

About Green Dog Studio

Jim Bob and Candice quit their “real” jobs to pursue art full time. They sold their house, renovated an old school bus for a home and built a studio out in the country in Gonzales County. Six years, two kids, 4 dogs, 1 cat, 18 chickens, 26 goats and 2 fish later, they are still living their dream of doing what they love.

In their work, they are exploring ways to alter the clay surface using various found objects: gears, bobbins, knobs, you name it, they have probably tried pressing it into clay. Although their work is similar in textures, they break free from each other in their color pallets. Jim Bob uses a monochromatic color scheme to make his precisely placed texture compliment the color of the clay. As opposed to Candice, who uses acrylics to wash the clay surface of shades of every color she can get her hands on.

They are both extremely grateful that they get to wake up and walk to their studio each day to explore their clay journey together.

All the work on the wall at Redbud Cafe is available for purchase through Brieger Pottery. Ask for assistance with purchase, at Redbud’s counter or next door at Brieger Pottery.
