Sharon is predominantly a Fantasy watercolourist but enjoys mixed media, silk painting and making beaded jewellery too.
She says “As a child I dreamed of dragons and their hordes of gems. Now, as an adult, I paint the dragons and make the jewellery!”
It all started with a grandmother who had a wonderful imagination and wove incredible stories. As a teen in the 1970’s she was inspired by the stunning album art on vinyl records. Creating has always been a part of her life.
Today, Sharon is a popular TV artist and demonstrates Derwent, Frisk and SAA products on the HOCHANDA shopping channel. She has had her own TV special. She has featured in an episode of “Fraser and Friends” as well as numerous appearances in “A Splash of Paint”. She has illustrated the covers for several books and has 2 teaching DVDs. Sharon has a new book with Search Press, “How To Draw Unicorns”!
She travels the countryside visiting art groups to demonstrate her techniques. She judges art Exhibitions, opens public events, and takes up to 6 painting holidays in Dorset every year.
We will be creating a smaller version of this Stump House. We will be working with a large yoghurt pot or similar. The plan will be to turn this into a tiny dwelling, maybe a mushroom house or elf holiday cottage. (Details for materials required will be sent out in advance),
and if anyone would like to watch my Forest Stump House video, it may spark their imagination! https://youtu.be/vv2w70zPIM4
Mariella was born in Italy, where she trained in Fashion and Fine Art, moving to London in 1978. After teaching painting and drawing in adult education between 1988-2004, she then moved to Cucklington, Somerset starting a private school of art.
She has exhibited her work in Italy, London and Somerset. Having recently retired from teaching her focus is now to develop
long standing ideas into painting. Mariella has a strong interest in Cubism. Her chosen subjects often evolve on canvas without pre established structure, a collage of textured papers and other materials are applied, then submerged with paint. The swing from figurative to abstraction is ultimately trying to satisfy a personal mood and statement. She is never satisfied and always searching until her work no longer relates to the original subject but acquires a new identity.
