By day, Sharon Argo is the executive assistant to the CEO of the University of Virginia’s Investment Management Company, but by night, she lets her artistic side take over as she creates one-of-a-kind pieces.
Her inspiration came from her mother, who was a self-taught artist, and her siblings who were artistic and creative in all types of media, including ceramics and drawing.
“My mother was a closet artist,” Argo laughed. “Everything she did was on-the-job training. She even taught herself piano. She had an ear for music and picked it up quickly.”
Like her mother, Argo is self-taught, which can be a challenging and fun journey of discovery. “It took me awhile to settle on a medium I liked,” she said.
