About the Artist:
Sharon is known for her strong figurative paintings, her use of narrative and a sensuous use of paint, her intricate detail in acrylic delicately applied over layers of watercolour. She is the quintessential romantic painter, concerned primarily with exploring our innate connection to nature and the power and beauty in our landscape. Her work addresses timeless issues such as our search for self and what it is like to live in the world. Sharon’s ultimate purpose as an artist is to leave the viewer with a sense of peace.
Sharon England’s work is based on drawing and imagination, made from intuition and experience. Her career background as a graphic designer has developed her keen sense of composition and her love of travel inspires her use of tribal markings and patterns in her work.
Sharon is a member of The Monarch Art Collective an Australia wide group of contemporary pop surrealists who are emerging through social media to make their mark on the Australian art scene.
