Czarina Shartle – Sharpening the Images of Self Through Artistic Expression

When we received what is not the submission on page 21 of the 2014-2105 Repentino. piece titled, Self Portrait, we were drawn to the image.  It is one of those images we can’t take our eyes away from – and Szarina Shartle certainly had a knack for grabbing our attention.  Using the medium of charcoal, as an artists she is able to bring out a variety of reactions, you’ll want to see her piece in out latest release of the 2014-2015 magazine, but in the meantime, we were able to grab a few details that led us into seeing her as a becoming artist as well.  As we see many of our graduating artists trek to Massachusetts, we are happy to have a great representation of this Boston artist in our very own award-winning Repentino..
