Smiling Faces Tell No Lies

Tim Sharman is an artist whose multi-disciplinary work sits on the fence between outsider and insider art. His use of craft techniques mixed with traditional fine art practices and a heavy dose of conceptual thinking create a hybrid of sophisticated naivety. He has been making art for over 25 years and has been in numerous exhibitions throughout the United States. This piece is drawn and painted with a rolling ball pen and brush dipped in water. Sharman holds a BFA and MFA from California College of the Arts (then known as California College of Arts and Crafts). Born in San Francisco, Sharman grew up in Martinez, California, where he continues to live and work, along with his artist wife Susan, and Pepper the cat. www.timsharman.com
