Sharon is a Scottish artist who has completed classes in Botanical Illustration at the Royal Botanic Garden Edinburgh. From a young age she has been fascinated by the precision of nature and its bold, shimmering colours. With a combined love of art, nature, travel and her current studies in biological science and human health, she aims to provoke a deeper appreciation of nature and inspire viewers to take a closer look at the wonders that surround them. Sharon chooses to work using the medium of professional coloured pencil as it allows her to create very detailed work, and the natural sheen of the pencil enhances the light, reflection and realistic image she aims to create. People who view her work often tell her they could reach out and take a bite of the fruit, or smell the flowers, and that's when Sharon knows she has captured the nature of the subject.
