Sharon Bruster lives and works in St Mawgan on the North coast.
The Cornish coast is Sharon’s sole inspiration, most specifically the water’s edge and the spaces between high and low tide. Walking, photographing, gathering, writing haiku, sketching, collage and painting are all part of Sharon’s daily practice. In creating a series of paintings, exploration is key – with each series of work she investigates new ways to express her fascination with this landscape.
Rich surfaces, colourful coastal palettes and expressive mark-making draw the viewer closer and evoke memories of favourite coastal places. Shapes, colours and textures observed at the meeting of land and sea are constant motifs in her work.
