Lady
Sharon works as a practising artist from her studio/gallery in Newborough Village.

Here she produces
original screenprints, pastel drawings, t.shirts, tea towels, printed glassware, creates jewellery and giftware.

Having commenced her art and screenprinting business in 1985 at the artist run space, ARC Yinnar in Gippsland, Sharon moved to her studio in Newborough in 1997 where she has her own studio.

Teaching Adult Education workshops is also another rewarding aspect to Sharon’s career as an artist. Sharon was not initially drawn to teaching but has found a desire to share her knowledge on to people who are eager to learn.

A continuing part of Sharon’s work is screenprinting garments for schools, clubs and businesses.

The most recent art theme is the Nostalgia series inspired by old black and white family photos which have been transformed into tinted glimpses of the past.

Sharon will take commissions if you wish to have your own family memories turned into a unique artwork.

The Pet portraits have special stories of their own. Sharon will often get portraits commissioned of loved pets no longer with a family. Sometimes where a photo can’t capture the essence of a favourite pet, an artwork can.








Sharon refers to herself as a ‘hopeless cat lover’ and has screenprinted many series of colourful edition prints featuring cats. Sharon has also created many artworks featuring native birds and flowers.

The Storybook Series, is a fantasy storybook theme of black and white screenprints. As with many of her pastel drawings and prints, Sharon was able to let her imagination go wild creating these fantasy images.

Sharon has designed and hand printed many images over recent years. The very popular tea towel series includes the '21st Century Woman', 'Guide for Chocolate Lovers', 'Modern Cat Philosophy', 'Green Expectations for Modern Families', 'The Wonders of Latrobe Valley', and ‘It Might Be Menopause If..’ A sense of humour is a must as obviously you can't take these things too seriously!
