This art is the creative imagination of Sharon Castelino but is jointly interpreted by her parents Stephen and Sylvine. Sharon is now 26 years old deaf and dumb by birth. Sharon’s artistic talent was discovered by her mother Sylvine when she was only two years old. All her paintings have depth and detail. Being very close to nature, Sharon’s themes mainly consist of sceneries, clouds, animals and imaginative creations.
The picture is painted in blue which is Sharon’s favorite color. Blue is calming, strong and steadfast or light and friendly. Sharon expresses that she is steadfast in her imaginative dream. Secondly the color blue evokes signs of reassurance in a complex world, while adding a hint of mystery and excitement. Sharon expresses in this work of art that even though she faces many challenges that she is offered tremendous reassurance from her family and friends.
Each of her paintings are unique (no two paintings are alike), hand painted and from her imaginations and thoughts.
Sharon is a true believer. Even though she is not able to express in words her art expresses faith in God and invites us to believe in unique gifts like faith, hope, Peace and freedom. The art also expresses Sharon’s thought –“You have to dream before your dreams can come true.”
