Growing up as a child
and living much of her early life in the outback regions of Australia,
encouraged Sharon to develop a love of nature, which led to a desire to express
this through art.
As a self-taught
artist, Sharon found her first inspiration from a paint set given to her by her
father and she was the child who preferred to illustrate rather than write
Sharon likes a
challenge and consequently tries her hand at different styles of painting. She
works in oils, acrylics and recently in watercolour and enjoys the flexibility
of various mediums. Her love of
photography provides imagery for many of her works.
Being a member of the
Ballarat Society of Artists Inc. has been rewarding and Sharon has enjoyed
attending the workshops and is excited to see fellow artists express and create
their own art.
