Sharon Steiner earned a BFA from John Herron School of Art in Indianapolis, training for a career in Advertising and Illustration. But she eventually fell in love with the rich colors and stylistic freedom of oil painting.

From the rocking chairs on her grandmother's North Carolina front porch to the people and landscapes of Indiana, her U.S. travels have inspired many colorful paintings.

All through grade school, she was drawing at every available moment. In her high school Senior year, she won a Saturday Life Drawing scholarship to John Herron School of Art. From that experience, she received a tuition scholarship for their Freshman year, and graduated with a BFA in Visual Communications/Graphic Design. Her early influences were the dynamic styles and bold color choices of both her Illustration professor Robert E. Weaver, and the fantasy artist Frank Frazetta.  Eventually - impressed with his narrative paintings and life-like portraits - she took a class from the nationally known artist Daniel E. Greene.

She has won several awards and has been accepted into many juried competitions - including the Art Directors Club of Indiana, the Hoosier Salon, the Southside Art League of Greenwood IN, the Indiana Artists Club, the Heartland Artists Show in Plymouth IN, the Midsummer Art Show in Seymour IN, the River Valley Regional in Lawrenceburg IN, the Indiana State Fair, and the National Oil & Acrylic Painters Society in Osage Beach MO. She also has many works in private collections throughout the United States.

In her Owen County home studio – Hummingbird Hill Art - she combines strong design, rich colors, and the illusion of motion into her Southern Indiana landscapes.
