About

I am a largely self taught artist, working in acrylic. I like to paint fast and allow the painting to declare itself as I go. I mostly use a limited palette but am experimenting with color, style and composition.
Through art I am trying to understand the human experience: how we relate to each other, to our environment, to our selves.

Influences

In my day to day work I am privileged to see people at some of their most vulnerable moments:

facing disease and death,
welcoming a new born child,
grappling with dementia,
crippled by anxiety,
overwhelmed with the kindness of carers
tormented by the voices of psychosis.

The nuances and variations in human reactions to self, to other and to our environment fascinates me and inspires my art. I hope to demystify, to reduce stigma and to better understand and empathise with this life, this shared humanity.

My art works are available for sale here on Bluethumb and also on my own website sharonmonagleart.com
