Sharon produces highly textured paintings utilising items she has rescued from skips and derelict buildings.
Her unconventional use of media such as fragments of old wallpaper, plaster, cement render and her own hand painted wallpaper translates into a unique tactile experience. Through the many layers a story is told and memories evoked.
With a life-long obsession with exploring derelict and empty buildings, Sharon focuses on the chaos and beauty that nature creates through decay. The conflict between the past and the present held within each fragment of wallpaper.
Sharon's art is a journey into the disconcerting realms of nostalgia and memories.
