Sharon returned to the North East of England after studying at Edinburgh College of Art; the landscape and culture of the North East is a source of inspiration for her prints. As an artist and printmaker, Sharon recreates her fascination of the place and its culture through relief prints in lino, wood, and engravings in perspex and plastic. Her work is very much based in local culture, heritage, environment and local community. Her creative practice also includes workshops, tutorials, and applying art within a wider social engagement. Sharon is a member of Northern Print Printmakers, and also provides lino print workshops from her studio in the heart of the cultural quarter of Newcastle, in the Ouseburn Valley.
