My featured works reflect my passion for architecture and the arts, and the creative processes and aesthetic nature that they involve. I love utilizing freehand drawing skills and design and modeling software to develop architectural designs, renderings, logos, cartoon characters, caricatures and other fine art. Additional backgrounds of mine include the violin, singing, acting, baseball, and commercial voice-overs for companies such as McDonald's and Kraft Macaroni & Cheese. These diverse experiences and skill sets, combined with worldly travels to places such as Turkey, China, Saipan and American Samoa, have contributed to my becoming a well-rounded and highly motivated individual. My undergraduate and masters studies (at Miami University OH and the University of Illinois-Champaign respectively) not only included architecture and design curricula, but also focuses in entrepreneurship, business administration and real estate development.
"We received many generous wedding gifts in the months leading up to and following our wedding. All were greatly appreciated. But Gavin was able to use his unique talent to give us something that will remain close to our hearts and proudly front and center on our wall for decades to come. His sketch of Beano's Cabin was so genuine and thoughtfully done that it instantly reminded us of why we chose to get married in that very place. Gavin was able to create a lasting sense of place for us to carry forever from our wedding night. For anyone celebrating a marriage or major life event in a place that holds more significance than a simple 'venue', I could not more highly recommend anyone than Gavin Sharp to take care that your place is an everlasting memory." -Laura Burnham
"Gavin put together amazing artwork, just like I had envisioned, that we made into little pins for our guests to wear at our wedding! Gavin's art was so fun but still noticeably "us." Our guests raved about the unique feature and I know plenty of people that still have the pins almost 4 years later! Gavin's attention to detail really helped a little something extra become a main feature. We're so glad we commissioned his custom work and have only the highest recommendations to give to anyone considering using his talents!" -Meghan Henry
