Bio

LOW RES-Sharon-1Born in England, Sharon has spent her adult life in Canada. Here she studied graphic design and was engaged commercially for several years before turning to painting as a means to express herself. Over the years she has experimented in several mediums, though currently works in oils and pastels.

Continuous self-study gives Sharon the freedom to express herself in her work. People and animals feature prominently, often with a sense of individualism and solitude. Just as a choreographer brings a ballet together to tell a story, Sharon views painting as a choreography of individual strokes with the final image expressing a contained vignette.

Sharon has been featured artist on several occasions and presented her first solo show in 2013. She has participated in several recent juried exhibitions including Canadiana (2014), Preshrunk (2015), as well as being part of the Artist in Residence program in Annapolis Royal (2014).

While Sharon lives in Halifax, working out of her home studio, her paintings have sold internationally, finding their way to collectors spanning North America and parts of Europe.
