Born and raised in Montreal, Shari Alec’s connection to all things visual started at a young age. As a child, Shari recalls art and photography as a way to escape; and it still does as an adult.
I experience a total calming sensation when I am painting, drawing, or photographing something beautiful. It has taught me that beauty comes in all forms, and it has changed me in many ways. If I am upset, immersing myself in art calms me like nothing else. For me, art is very transformational.
Shari Alec is a contemporary artist who specializes in painting, photography, and drawing. She creates acrylic abstractions, as well as expressionistic figurations, using fluid marks placed against layered, neutral backgrounds. She prefers this technique, and manual manipulations in her abstractions. Her strong foundation is complemented by a creative and inquisitive nature that is inspired by the environment around her, both its complexity and simplicity.
As an art consultant, Shari is involved in every aspect of the business. She’s hands-on with every project, and responsive to every client’s vision. She enjoys collaborating with people for residential or commercial projects, learning who they are and the goals they’d like to achieve. With her unique aesthetics and forward thinking, Shari relishes in seeing the completion of a design project from beginning to end.
Shari holds a BA in Communications, a BFA in Cinema, and an Art History Certification. She has been mentored by numerous experts in art appraisal, design, and photography. Shari works with the finest teachers of our time, continuing her education and honing her skills. Her clients include private collectors and corporations in Montreal, Los Angeles, New York, Toronto, Miami, Chicago, Tel Aviv, and Paris, and elsewhere.
