Artist Spotlight

Sharron Bowen

Sharon enjoys painting and creating an image where once there was a blank piece of paper or canvas. She says "My style is an evolving process allowing me to explore different painting mediums and subject matter. I work in watercolour, watercolour on Yupo paper, acrylics and alcohol inks. I love intense colour and often pick subject matter for painting that works for this style. Landscapes of all types and especially the mountains hold my interest along with painting of flowers and vegetation"
