This biography from the Archives of AskART:
The following, submitted August 2004, is from the artist.

Sharon Teal-Coray is a realist-style painter focused on depicting the culture of American Indians, especially the Anasazi, and her primary subject is still lifes of their pottery as well as desert landscapes. She also does Indian portraits and mountain men, and works both in oils and acrylics.

Teal-Coray was born on December 9, 1942 in Salt Lake City, Utah, the oldest of five siblings. The family lived in Emigration Canyon, which during her childhood she enjoyed exploring on her horse.

At a young age she developed a special interest in the American Indian and their culture. She started painting in 1970, and depicted a variety of subjects. While on a vacation to the Four Corners area and Mesa Verde, she found her real interest and began painting Anasazi Indian still lifes. She enrolled in an ancient pottery-making class at the University of Utah where she learned how to find the clay, grind it and make beautiful pots and fire them the way the ancient Indians had done.

She was greatly influenced by her father Raymond Teal who was a watercolor artist and carried his watercolors with him through WW2, painting what he saw.

She is basically a self-taught artist taking a few workshops here and there. Reading every book in her local library on art, she developed her own style.
The Dutch masters, Rembrandt, Hals, Vermeer and Flemish painter Rubens influenced her. She uses some of their techniques in her methods especially "glazing".

Vern Swanson, Robert Olphin and William Seifrit list her in "Utah Art". Pages 252. Published in 1991. Her art was featured in Art Of The West magazine, 1995, Nov/Dec issue.

In 2005 publisher Leisure Arts will be publishing 3 books on her techniques with numerous color photos.
