Sharmon Davidson* began her artistic career as a graphic designer, and then chose to put her career on hold, devoting several years to raising her children.  During this time, she earned two bachelor’s degrees, did various types of volunteer work, andperformed in a professional Middle Eastern dance troupe.   Davidson has exhibited her work professionally since 1993, when she graduated from Northern Kentucky University with a BFA in Drawing and a BA in Art Education.   In addition, she has taught in the Kentucky public schools, and furthered her education at the prestigious Art Academy of Cincinnati.  Other interests include gardening, photography, hiking, and building/ restoring old log houses.

Davidson’s work has been shown throughout the eastern United States, receiving awards in both regional and national juried exhibitions.  Solo show venues include the Frable Gallery at ArtSpace in Richmond, Virginia, and the Miami Valley Cooperative Gallery’s space at the Dayton Convention Center.   Several pieces of her art toured the country for two years in the national traveling group exhibit A Patchwork of Women’s Art.  Her work has been published on magazine covers, appeared in Professional Artist magazine, and has been selected for inclusion in Art Buzz: The 2013 Collection, a premier showcase of top quality, contemporary visual art from around the world.  She is currently represented by the Promenade Gallery in Berea, Kentucky, and is a member of the Kentucky Guild of Artists and Craftsmen.
