Sharyne E. Walker is, quite simply an American national treasure. Master of literally every form of art upon which she lays her hands and heart, Walker's work is elegant, magical and artistically perfect. Her acrylic paintings, usually worked on linen, are so detailed that one wishes to stand for hours gazing at each piece.
