Sharon studied Art and Photography at Reading University in the U.K. and the Slade School of Fine Art in London. With further studies in technical photography in Australia, she specialises in printmaking and photography. She’s a member of Sydney Printmakers, a group of artists who exhibit in Australia and overseas. She’s taught art and photography and has exhibited at the Sydney’s Kodak Gallery.  

Her work is about the world we live in, and the issues which particularly concern her. Growing up in apartheid South Africa, race issues have always been of primary importance, and these were reflected in her art. Other issues such as environmental issues are very important, to her, and the Cooks River, being close to where she lives, is a case in point. She has photographed people and places along the Cooks River.

She spent many months walking along and photographing the river and its environment, and then processed and printed her photographs. She wanted to show the positive aspects seen in restoration of the river to its past glory, as well as the degradation and pollution of the parts of the river. Not everything is beautiful in her photographs, but art is not solely about beauty.
