“California Garden Party is a trippy celebration of femininity, interweaving references to traditional folklore and our connection to nature. The work is self-referential, drawing from a euphoric, emotional inner world.” – Sharon England
About the Artist:
Sharon is known for her strong figurative paintings, her use of narrative and a sensuous use of paint. Intricate details in acrylic are delicately applied over layers of watercolour. She is 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.
