About Me

Hi! I’m Sharae. Life is full of unexpected twists and turns as I’m sure so many of you know all too well. My life is no different. You expect life to follow a certain trajectory but then the unexpected happens and everything changes. I have come to see that in all this madness that God is creating a symphony, that all our stories are creating one large symphony.

You see I grew up loving to draw and illustrate people. As a six-year-old, I would sit at my Grandmother’s kitchen table and draw my family members from a picture on her fridge. It would soon become my passion. I would sit for hours on our screened-in porch and draw people I made up with my imagination, discussing out loud to myself the characters that each person was and their connections to one another. But as I got older, I didn’t think there was anything I could do with this passion of mine. That is until I started illustrating my children and sharing the portraits with family and friends. Soon I had people reaching out to me to create portraits of their families and friends. So here I am with a once dead dream now resurrected.

I love drawing people because everyone is so interesting to me, each of us uniquely designed by God. Each of us has a part in the symphony. Most of us have dreams that we have given up on. I hope my story inspires you to keep dreaming. I want to leave you with the lyrics that inspired the name of my business.

“Cause even in the madness
There is peace
Drowning out the voices all around me
Through all of this chaos
You are writing a symphony
A symphony”
