Sharon McDonagh is a Mixed Media Artist from York.  Creating highly textured paintings that focus on the beauty that nature creates through decay. 


Her passion for detail and use of varied media such as plaster, cement render and 'rescued' old wallpaper from abandoned buildings creates a unique tactile experience. Through the many layers a story is told and memories evoked.

Photograph shows the Artist with her 'Autonomous' Series, taken in an undisclosed derelict house.


Long listed for the Aesthetica Art Prize 2021 for her series 'Autonomous' 

The Series will be shown on screens throughout the Aesthetica Exhibition at York Art Gallery commencing 28th May 2021.

Featured in 'Future Now 2021': 125 Contemporary Artists from the Aesthetica Art Prize.


Currently one of the Resident Artists exhibiting at Sketch (York Art Gallery)
