Artist’s Biography: Sharon Boyd
I started my “art career” whilst still at school, where I studied Graphic Art, Design and History of Art.
I have a small gallery/studio at home. At my studio I teach painting classes to anyone that would love to learn how to paint or just be creative. It is informal and relaxing. Many of the world’s problems are solved there. (joking).
My paintings are generally vibrant and happy. I have been described as a versatile and an explorative artist. The mediums I use are acrylics, oils, pouring medium, water colour and alcohol inks.
I paint on canvas, board, paper and wood and if you stand long enough next to me, I will start painting you as well.
I have been blessed with my paintings being scattered around the globe. From UAE, England, Wales, Scotland to America.
I have also attended many group exhibitions and still do monthly exhibitions at various markets as well as framing businesses.
My inspiration for this art piece:
I decided to paint and decorate my bodice with the “tree of life” using different mediums. I used stained glass for the leaves, Silver Leaf for the tree trunk and branches, acrylic paint for the sky and crushed multi coloured glass for the fields.
The “tree of Life” represents our personal development, uniqueness and individual beauty. Just as branches of a tree strengthen and grow upwards to the sky with a few kinks here and there, we too grow stronger, striving for greater knowledge, wisdom and new experiences as we move through life.
