Born in Scranton Pennsylvania, Sharyn Lightfoot had a love for art and nature. She moved to Florida after graduating from high school. She is a self-taught artist, with a passion for pastel. Her first show, “Rambling: The Art of Sharyn Lightfoot,” was held in April 2014 at the Deltona Arts Center in Deltona, Florida. She has received five Best In Show awards, a number of first, second, and third places, and numerous Merit awards. “I can’t stop looking!” To me, that is the most flattering compliment to hear from my artistic audience said, Sharyn.” We are honored to have Sharyn show her work this summer.
