Shari Warren is an American artist and illustrator who's currently living and working in Northern California. From a very young age, she has had the desire to create artwork that puts smiles on people's faces. She uses both traditional and digital media to create her artwork. Shari’s versatility and wide artistic knowledge stems from her openness to new ideas and experiments with varying techniques, comparing quality and depth in order to determine the most effective approach. To create her work, she first begins by sketching using a pencil and paper. This is in order that she gets the right layout through a sketch before delving into the details. That injects proper proportion and allows her to make the necessary adjustments before transferring the work to the final support base.
Shari has a professional background in software design industry where she works as a graphic designer, illustrator and an art director. Although she works on a variety of subjects, her main focus is making art that resonates with the consumer trends. She gets involved in developing children's books and licensing her works to publishers and product manufacturing companies. At the same time, her art is also sold through galleries across the nation. Due to the quality of her work and her subjects, Shari’s creative pieces have become famous for use in homes and in the advertisement industry as well. She continues to create art for different industries. Besides her art, she also enjoys spending time with her family, watching television, shopping and working as a volunteer within the community.
