Dancing In The



Born: 20th October 1961 - 30th November 2004

Born in England near Tunbridge Wells, Kent, followed by a move to East Anglia, Sharon attended Downham Market Grammar School, where she obtained her ‘A’ Levels. She then continued her studies at Norwich City College of Further and Higher Education, pursuing her flair for languages and specialising in both French and German. Sharon was a professional artist and lived and worked in London.

Sharon had a natural ability to be creative and this is clearly demonstrated in her art. Employing design in its simplest form, her style is unique. "The simple, direct vision of this artist should surprise and delight both the general public and collectors alike." - S Sinsley - Art Historian, Critic and Professor of Modern and Contemporary Art at the School of the Art Institute of Chicago - Chicago, 25 March 2000

Sharon’s deeply held belief was that the five senses - sight, sound, touch, taste and smell - and a great awareness of the beauty of nature can evoke strong images and emotions. Life is a gift - if we can learn to appreciate all the wonderful things on offer, then we will have the key to life and inner harmony. This appreciation brings optimism to a world in which there is much sadness. Nature is the healer - it soothes, replenishes, regenerates. In all her work, Sharon drew upon the influence and inspiration of life itself.

Sharon’s first one-woman exhibition took place in the UK in 1998 at McNeill Fine Art Gallery, Radlett, Hertfordshire. In 2000, she was launched internationally with a six-week solo exhibition, The Power Of Passion, at Collins Fine Art, Chicago, USA. Sharon also took part in several joint shows including The Modernists exhibition at McNeill Fine Art in 2000. Her works are held in many individual collections, including the painting, White Lace, which is now in the private collection of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth The Queen Mother. Another of her paintings, The Rose, is owned by the English Rugby Football Union and this currently hangs in the grounds of the English national stadium. Sharon was also mentioned in the Culture section of The Sunday Times by Art Editor, Richard Brooks and featured in the London Evening Standard.

Alongside leading representatives from the Tate Modern, the Guildhall School of Music and the French Variety Club, Sharon was a patron of Young Masters of Arts, a new international arts project aimed at pursuing a fusion between the visual arts and music to promote youth excellence.

Sharon was committed to art and the discovery of new and exciting ideas and techniques. Her progress in the art world was very rapid.
