Sharron

Bates

Sharron is an artists and illustrator who lives and works in County Durham.

Creating art is a compulsion for her.  She finds inspiration everywhere and her urge to draw is irrepressible.  She loves collecting beautiful pieces of discarded paper that hold words and memories.

Her illustrative work often explores mixed media collage, which embraces her love of vintage colours and ephemera.

Paper plays a fundamental role in her current work, especially if aged, turned yellow, or worn because of time and use.

She can spend hours carefully collaging found papers that hold some pertinence to her illustrations.
