Sharon McDonagh is a Mixed Media Artist from York.  She produces highly textured paintings focusing on nostalgia, decay and dereliction.  


Her passion for detail and use of varied media creates a unique tactile experience. Through the many layers a story is told and memories evoked.


To create the many layers and textures,  Sharon uses acrylic paint, plaster, cement render, handmade wallpaper and repurposed items from skips/derelict buildings.
