Painting has always given Sharon a sense of accomplishment, so after seeing ‘The SWAN Portraits’ on Facebook, she decided she wanted to make someone happy.
‘It’s a win-win! You give enjoyment, and you receive enjoyment.’
Sharon has been painting for as long as she can remember, but on a serious level for ten years. Her preferred medium is acrylic on stretched canvas, but she paints with watercolour paints and pencils on textured cards.
Her favourite subjects are portraits, landscapes and abstracts. However, her artistic talent has to fit in around her working full time in the print industry.
More of Sharyn’s work can be viewed on her Instagram page.
I wanted Aggie to be involved in the project because it is important to express the absolute perfect expression of the uniqueness that is our Aggie. A beautiful and complex child who shines with joy despite the challenges she faces. People with syndromes that are extremely rare are often invisible in the wider community. By including Aggie in the project, she is no longer an invisible – she is seen for unique beauty as a face of a little girl with an unnamed syndrome.
