Biography Sharon Kopriva
The following is from the artist:
Sharon Kopriva was born in Houston Heights, Texas, 11 February 1948. Educated in Houston public schools and the University of Houston, she earned a Master of Fine Arts in Painting in 1981 and an earlier Bachelor of Science in Art Education in 1970.
Her teachers included New York painter, John Alexander, and sculptor James Surls. Sharon taught in Houston area high schools for ten years prior to her full-time career in the visual arts.
Her Catholic background and an early 1981 trip to Peru directly influenced her somewhat expressionistic mummies like figures. Artists that had a special influence include mentors Edward and Nancy Kienholz, Goya, James Ensor, and Felicien Rops.
