HeroesI'm also heavily influenced by music as well as art and always paint with something blaring out on the hi-fi. I have always been attracted to the glamour of the 60s and mod culture in general and as an artist I'm obviously inspired by other artists and much prefer the modernists to the old style classic painters, but appreciate a wide variety of art, the biggest influence artists I like are Andy Warhol, Ron English, Keith Haring, Roy Lichtenstien, Piet Mondrian, Willem de Kooning, Damien Hurst, Banksy and Francis Bacon. Banksy art is a especially hot at the moment and for good reason as its so current and cool. I tend to work with sketches, acrylics, mixed media, stencils, corel painter, photoshop and love to experiment with new media. I'm a fan of simplistic symbolism in paintings like Warhol and Opie painted and some of Banksy art too also features great symbolism, lush paintings that are rich and great on the eye.

Hi have added a new gallery called extra photography....if you have the chance please have a wee look and give your views sharon13


hi if you have time feel free to come and look at my new images in my relfections gallery ..... hope them sites where useful....many thanks sharon :o)


Love your work, especially the pop art style. Margaret, Artist at Work,


had a wee look through my arts magazines and found some websites.....not really sure if they r much use to you but i hope they might here you go....... hope this helps to ya soon. sharon :o)


no worries at all.... iknow them cameras can become very addictive also....i never put mine to ya soon. :o)


websites are hard to find on illustrators most of the time.....i mostly came across illustrations by mistake and again through google or from art magazine information. if you search on google or yahoo for free stockphotos u might come arcoss something that takes your eye...but i think the best way to get the photos you really want is to take them yourself...this way its more focused and less time consuming .....dose not have to be a great camera just a simple standard camera would do....because the photo will be made your own after all the mixed media is added......sometimes makin mistakes pay just through yourself at it...if your after seventies and eigthies illustrations and can find examples all you have to do is look at photos cds covers films and books basic research and draw or reproduce photos of your own that look the same...i will myself look through some of my art books at the weekend and get some websites for you and post them to your page.....hope this helps a little bit more.... speak to you soon .....shazi :o)

great photograpy,phil......i love your colors also...ted


thank you so much for your kind words....yeah that adobe suite is very addictive and a very adjustable it CS2 that you have? i would not recommened books on how to use the programmes cos its easier to learn through trail and error cos u learn it your own way and pick it up better....but i would start buying computer arts projects magazine which gives many tips about illustrator and shows work from all over the world....there is also a great booked called illustraion now which contains some very creative images and gives some great ideas....i myself just go on amazon and into waterstones on the high street and look for graphic design books in the art section and also through magazines because of the free software that sometimes can be very useful and rewarding at times....i use illustrator and photoshop more for touching up scanned in art work....but i am also still learning myself how to use both programmes beacause there is always something new out for them very few months that needs to be learned and taken note off.....hope this helps and feel free to come back to my page anytime and all the best for now sharon13 :0)


totally wicked images...great stuff. sharon13
