Shari’s love of nature is evident in her well observed watercolour compositions. They are gentle and dreamy and evocative. There is a looseness in her style which is skilfully and delicately managed. Her enchanting colours will transport you to a gentle, natural place.
Shari is inspired by the natural world and the creatures that inhabit it. She uses transparent glazes of watercolour to capture the ethereal effects of light and colour in nature. Sometimes she uses natural fibres or handmade papers are collaged into the painting or crayons or inks may be used within a watercolour painting to achieve a particular effect. Shari has been painting her whole life and has taught for many years. She lives and works on Dartmoor.
