Sharon was born and raised in Alberta and graduated from Animal Health Technology in 1982.
She focused on the health and welfare of large animals, and ran an elk ranch for 10 years. Animals, wildlife, the arts and the environment have always been at the top of her interests. Currently, Sharon is still involved by volunteering at the BCSPCA Wild Arc taking care of injured and orphaned wild animals.
Also, Sharon has been involved in the arts since the age of 11. She has taken classes, workshops and studied the old masters ever since.
Painting is a passion. Visually, some things just need to be painted due to their beauty or emotional value. Always striving to be able to paint anything and everything - painting is a private, solitary endeavor. Luckily, Sharon is surrounded by friends and fellow artists that inspire creativity and excellence.
More recently, Sharon has been focusing her art on our environment - the oceans, water and trees that are necessary for life as we know it.
Sharon is a current member of the Victoria Sketch Club, Federation of Canadian Artists, Imagine Artworks and SPAC. Her work can also been seen at Central Art Studio and Gallery in downtown Victoria.
