Sharon's seemingly Freudian world comes to life in her studio space in Clapham. The organic shapes she creates all have an immediately discernible character, no matter how abstract, some appear friendly, others fierce. One must admit that the mythological figure of the wild man in its countless guises has a primordial resemblance to the intuitive beings Sharon creates.

“Drawing is integral to my work. I am fascinated by the immediacy of mark making and, for me this can mean either actively using materials to draw or, understanding a puff of cloud, a stain, fold, or tear as a drawing. There is no boundary to drawing – it is ultimate freedom.”
