Hi, I'm Sharon

Painting is my happy place...

I’ve devoted much of my time and studio space to painting pet portraits in beautiful watercolors and high quality paper.  My favorite part of painting someone’s pet is capturing a moment in time for a client. I enjoy hearing stories behind each subject I paint, too. It’s very personal to me.  It allows me to discover the essence of a client’s furry or feathered family member. Each one is so unique and I try to capture the personality of each one.  Knowing I’m able to fill a void or capture a moment for a client is what brings me joy as an artist.

Whether it is a fun photo of an energetic puppy or a memorial painting of a faithful horse, I put my heart and talents into each painting.

Want to see how I work?


Pretty much anything can be painted on...

I am a native of Albuquerque, New Mexico where the landscape and big sky inspired my love for color. I am married to my high school sweetheart and we have five awesome boys. We are a military family who recently retired back in the US after spending time in Germany and Japan.

Painting in watercolor is my preferred medium, although I also paint murals and canvas using acrylics. I'm happy to discuss your Mural or other custom project, email me today.

I have to say that Sharon Graham Smith
is absolutely phenomenal. She is truly blessed with an exceptional ability to not only capture each individual pets personality but also has a way of painting the animals soul! I am honored to have a painting of my beautiful little Maggie done by her! Sharon I cannot thank you enough!
