Hi, my name is Sharon Murcott and I live on a small farmlet in Oamaru. I’ve always had a love for drawing and painting, although it has only been in the last 10 -12 years that I have taken my painting more seriously.
Mainly self-taught, but I have been fortunate enough to attend workshops, both local and in Australia, of artists that I really admire and have learnt a lot from. My favoured medium is watercolour as I love the unpredictability of what can happen.
Over the years I have been lucky enough to have had some success in various art exhibitions locally and nationally. I strive to get a feeling of passion and excitement in my paintings and hope that the viewer gets as much pleasure in looking at my painting as I did in painting it.
