Sharon is an artist based in Birmingham, UK. She is a specialist printmaker, most recently working with photopolymer intaglio and lithography processes. She uses familiar, everyday imagery exploring ideas around nostalgia, class and cultural heritage to question what people value in art and in life. Her practice responds to her environment: the urban and natural landscape and how people affect, influence and change it. She produces work in series which have contrasting styles depending on her subject matter and processes.
Her latest series of prints are based on images of her late grandparents’ house and garden, they are atmospheric, grainy interiors and garden landscapes, personal, intimate spaces with echoes of the people who lived in them. The prints are symbols of love and remembrance.
