Born in Winnipeg, but living in Regina since 1976, Sharon began her watercolour adventures in 2009.
“The ability of colour to set mood, and invoke emotions fascinates me. Even if the subject is imaginary, the feelings that colour can provoke are very real.
My paintings start with powdered pigments applied in random gestures. Afterwards, like finding pictures in clouds with a pen, I explore the result to find the underlying images and their relationships.
My strongest influences are the Impressionists, and the Japanese woodblock print artists that inspired them. Like them, I hope to captivate the viewer by colour, evocative composition and meandering lines.”
