Sharon M. Fitzgerald, MA is a Los Angeles native and received her Bachelors in Art Studio from the University of California, Santa Barbara and her Master's degree in Art History from California State University, Los Angeles, where she also taught Art History. In 2008, Sharon established The Art History Channel (AHC) as a way of sharing the history of art with people outside of the traditional university setting. Through the AHC, Sharon lectures art history at public and private venues throughout Los Angeles and publishes art history books in a series by the same name.
Growing up in Los Angeles, Sharon was also attracted to cultural influences way beyond the classroom. As a youth, Sharon was immersed in the L.A. punk rock scene, graffiti art and the emerging skateboard culture exploding out of Venice. After college, she began her travels in Europe and ended up living in Prague, Czech Republic in 1992. In fact, Prague made such an impression on her, she is writing a fiction series called Lost in Prague which will be published under her pen name S. M. Fitzgerald.
Today you can find Sharon at art openings in downtown L.A., vintage movie theaters in Los Feliz, and live music where it's happening. She also loves hiking in Griffith Park and hanging out in Venice on the weekends. When she's not in L.A. she can be found in Joshua Tree at Pappy & Harriet's Saloon in Pioneertown or attending a spiritual Sound Bath at the Integratron.
