Sharyn Hyatt's ( - ) work is characterized by Western North Carolinian scenes. Her art is largely abstract, incorporating the smoky tones and hazy qualities of her area. She is immensely well known for her work on feminine Cherokee myth; Hyatt often uses large geometric shapes in this endeavor, such as triangles to represent mountain peaks or arrowheads, or circles for full moons or as a representation of woman. She studied art at the University of Georgia and Clemson University in South Carolina. Her works have been exhibited at Georgia's Kennesaw College Art Gallery and Wesleyan College Art Gallery.
