Meet the artist: Artist Shari Arai DeBoer uses watercolor, printmaking and mixed media to evoke visual stories in her fine art and illustration work.
While plant life, everyday objects, and personal stories inspire much of her fine art, she also finds great satisfaction in interpreting other people’s concepts in her illustration work. Visit her website, sharideboer.com, to see more of her work.
Above: Shari with some of her art, in the upper left is her etching, Hand Tools.
