My name is Monti Sharp. I am a Louisiana native, born and raised in the town of Monroe, where I began drawing and painting at a young age. In my work, I strive to find and extract beauty from chaos using figurative and abstract elements. I am inspired by the work of the Old Masters and I incorporate Renaissance techniques into my use of traditional materials and digital tools. Time and reflection are also essential to my creative process. They are messengers delivering deliberate and precise compositions. I am also an accomplished professional actor and film maker living in Los Angeles, California, where I remain visible in television and movies. My artwork can be found in private and public collections across the United States.
