Born in Camden, New South Wales, Australia
Previously Director of Loyalty Media (Custom Publishing) and Vanilla Spin (Design Studio)
Living and working in Bondi, Australia
Working from her studio in Bondi, Australia, Sharon is a figurative artist who explores the unspoken language revealed through the expression and compositions of the human body and their relationships with nature.
Having worked as a magazine editor for many years, Sharon’s eye is keenly trained to create images that instantly connect with her audience. “The eyes need to say something to you. I love to capture the gentle unseen presence of a person – the soul I suppose.”
Having co-founded and led both a successful publishing company and a professional design studio over a period of 20 years, Sharon left behind her entrepreneurial career in February 2017 to pursue her lifelong passion of drawing and painting. Her Map Series marks her first series as a professional artist. Having travelled the world a few times over Sharon loves the nostalgic feeling evoked by old maps. “They seem to speak of all the roads and the people who have travelled them. They kind of represent all of human life to me. All of the places we live and the things we do there, so it felt right to me to use them as a base for my paintings.”
Earlier works (Freedom Series) were completed as a hobbiest during her years living in the Middle East where she claims ‘the heat and oppression are enough to drive anyone to paint! In Doha, you spend a lot of time indoors and the almost complete lack of anything beautiful to look at (there is a lot of sand and rubble), really motivates you to try and create something beautiful for yourself.”
Thanks for stopping by.
I’m always on the look out for opportunities to display my work. Please contact me if you have a business in Sydney and the Eastern Suburbs and I can help fill up your walls. I am also available for commercial commissions.
