I trained at St Martins School of Art, London, gaining a B.A. in Fashion and Textiles in 1976. Since then I have been exploring and developing my own unique style of hand painting directly onto natural fabrics,mostly silks,cottons and velvets.
I love colour,and would like to bring a splash of it into everyone’s life with my scarves and bags. The luminosity of silk and velvet enhances the vibrant colours i use in my work.
Sharon paints beautiful flowers birds butterflies,evocative Cornish scenes and designs of a more abstract nature.
As well as textile design i also paint in watercolour.I am a member of The Guild of Ten , a craft co-operative ,we have a shop in Truro, Cornwall, where i sell my work .I am also a member of the Cornwall Crafts Association, which has galleries at Trellisick and Trelowarren.And sell my work to other selected galleries in St Ives,Porthleven,Tintagel,USA and Malta.
