About the Artist

Born in New Zealand Sharon lives on a small lifestyle block in the South Island town of Oamaru. She has had a love of drawing and painting most of her life. Although due to a rural upbringing she is Mainly self taught as even at secondary school Art was not an available option. This has lead to a lot of finding her own way and trial and error to develop her unique style and certainly breaking some ‘watercolour rules’. She has been fortunate enough to attend workshops, both in New Zealand and Australia, of Artists that she admires and has learnt a lot from. Her favoured medium is most definitely watercolour. The unpredictability and excitement of what can happen when painting with this medium is still as thrilling now as it was when she first started painting, perhaps even more so.

Exhibiting in and around her hometown of Oamaru Sharon has sold work both nationally and internationally as well as having won various awards.

Sharon’s inspiration for her paintings comes from everyday situations and Moments that she strives to capture. Her three children are a constant source of inspiration.  Whether it is a moment in the remoteness of the high country, the busyness of a city street or the intensity of a portrait, She strives to give the viewer the same feeling of passion and excitement when looking at the painting that she feels when painting it.
