About Us

Award winning artist Sharon Brening, a member of Western Artists of America, has been painting since she was eight years old. At an even earlier age, she was introduced to the Southwest and the cultures of Native America. She has a rich body of work unrivaled by many artists and her paintings hang today in museums, galleries and private collections around the United States. She is a member of the Western Artists of America, a prestigious invitational member group of artist dedicated to the America’s Western heritage. In 2011, Sharon won the gold medal award for oil painting at the 7th Annual Western Artists of America Show and Sale. When she was still in her twenties, Brening was an award-winning graphic designer working with several of the Southwest’s top advertising campaigns. Her passion for art was never far from her daily life. She continued developing her art in different mediums until finally she focused on her painting. Charles Pearce, one of America’s foremost collectors of Western Art, personally chose “Wrestling with Innocence” for the Pearce Museum’s prestigious permanent collection. Her work can also be found at the Turn West Design Studio in Carefree, Arizona and the Silver Linings Gallery in Ouray, Colorado. Her sons now grown, Sharon and her husband make their home in Peoria, AZ where her art studio in the desert provides the perfect creative surroundings for her talent. Website: www.sbrening.com
