Sharon Calahan - Archive

Pacific Northwest native Sharon Calahan has had a lifelong love for nature and outdoor activities. Her art education in illustration and design led her into a career as an artist in the motion picture feature animation business. Since joining Pixar Animation Studios in 1994, she has helped create The Good Dinosaur, Toy Story, A Bug’s Life, Toy Story 2, Finding Nemo, Ratatouille, Cars 2, Coco and many more. A star in the field of animation, in 2013 she was admitted to the prestigious American Society of Cinematographers.

Sharon has spent her career studying the effects of light and color to enhance beauty and mood in the film world and has recently endeavored to transfer this knowledge into landscape painting. She loves to hike and paint out of doors, and then to use these field studies as direct inspiration in the studio. She won the Bronze Medal Award at the 2011 Oil Painters of America Western Regional Exhibition, and has participated in other juried events such as the Sonoma Plein Air Festival, the Napa Valley Art Festival, the Emeryville Art Show, as well as selected gallery shows.
