Color is the "Spice of Life!" Through color and design my one of a kind creations make ordinary things become exceptional and unique. Sharon Cacase, artistically known as Merab Coleman was a teacher of the Deaf and Hard of Hearing for many years. After retiring, she has been able to dedicate more time to pursue her passion for watercolors, graphite, and pastels. The use of the allonym Merab is in commemoration of her ancient ancestor; an adventurous New Englander. Sharon began drawing as a result of teaching deaf children. Drawing pictures sometimes helped to reinforce certain concepts. Ms. Cacase has a B. S. from Central Connecticut State University and a M.A. from Gallaudet University. She is a juried artist at Glynn Visual Arts, and a member of the Jekyll Island Art Association. She attended the Maine School of Art and Design and has taken workshops from Louise Eaton, Bob Fisher, Tony van Hasselt, Judi Wagner, Tony Couch and Alvaro Castagnet. Merab hopes you enjoy her art as much as she enjoys making it.
