Strydom, Sharon

Sharon Strydom spent an idyllic childhood in a village on the West Coast.  Studying art in school, her art teacher sent some of her paintings to UCT and she was awarded a bursary to study art.  Youth and immaturity made her decline the bursary as none of her friends were attending UCT.. 

More than 25 years later and after she sold her business, she picked up a paintbrush again and has been extremely fortunate to attend workshops by some of the finest artists and tutors in South Africa, as well as the USA.  Sharon has participated in various group exhibitions since 2011.

"As an artist I call on the knowledge and inspiration I have gained from my various teachers and fellow artists and strive to create pure atmosphere, a quietness from the chaos, by capturing mood and magic on my canvas yet allowing the viewer to ponder and complete the painting.  In striving to find uniqueness I am constantly searching for beautiful notes of colour, breath of shadow, using soft romantic edges and my own language of mark making to create texture with sensitivity and gentleness.

My teacher once said "Everything you do is of worth, accept the blessing".  Well, I now accept the blessings."
