Artists / 2019 Cowgirl Up! Artists

Sharon Markwardt

Burleson, TX and Santa Fe, NM

In 2005 Markwardt moved from the suburbs to a more rural part of central Texas so her daughter could have a horse. The livestock in the neighborhood provided the artist with ample subject matter after her mare tossed her into Western art. Following a bad fall from the horse, Markwardt moved to oil paints and began to see and explore more color. Working from her own photos, Markwardt now depicts the personalities and emotions of the creatures who intrigue her, believing similar emotions unite people and animals alike. Nothing makes Sharon more happy than being able to elicit smiles or laughter from viewers and collectors.
