Born and raised in Regina, Sharron has spent the past 35 years residing on Echo Lake in the Qu'Appelle Valley in Saskatchewan Canada. She completed a Bachelor of Arts, Education degree and a number of Fine Arts classes at the University of Regina.
As a print making major, Sharron initially did etchings and prints on copper and lino, then explored painting and batik on silk.
In 2005, Sharron received a grant from the Heritage Department Government of Saskatchewan to research and produce work celebrating the provinces 100th Anniversary culminating in the show "Land Trails". A number of paintings from the show sold through the Assiniboia Gallery in Regina.
In 2002, two of Sharron's etchings/watercolours on paper were included in "Qu'Appelle:Tales of Two Valleys" at the McMichael Canadian Art Collection in Kleinburg, Ontario, then the Mendel Gallery in Saskatoon and the McKenzie Art Gallery of Regina.
In 2001 she was one of five finalists in the Western Division of the RBC and Canadian Art Magazine's Contemporary Art Competition held at Harrison Gallery in Vancouver, British Columbia.
Believing the dictum an artist should paint what they know, her work focuses on waterways from Saskatchewan's Northern Lakes to the Qu'Appelle Valley including plein air sketches and paintings of Caribbean Islands. Recent focus is on the reflection of landscape in water. Her studio overlooks Echo Lake and she draws inspiration from the ever-changing view.
Recently, Sharron completed two 3-day workshops "Image to Abstraction" with Mark Daniel Nelson in Scottsdale, Arizona. Her work is moving in a more abstract direction with focus on colour, line and simplification.
