Sharon has lived at Whangarei Heads for many years. In that time she has worked in a textile business, pursued a Bachelor of Visual Applied Arts in multi-media and had a teaching career in Screen printing, Design/Drawing & Creative Art wear to fashion students.
“Art ‘Collaborationz’ at Whangarei Heads is an Art Event I am proud to say I am part of as a resource artist. I get to work with talented artists from around the world who are inspiring to say the least. This event allows me to try other mediums and push ideas."
"Textile design & screen printing is my strong point and passion. This started in 1991 at the ‘Fibre, Fabric, and Design Fashion Course’ in early 90’s. A lot of my inspiration comes from patterns I see in nature, colour & form. I really enjoy placing my drawings into print & pushing the boundaries of what can be printed besides fabrics. My identity plays an important role as well to represent my design work, which reflects ‘NZ Cultural Design”.
