Sharon Hurst

Sharon is a Fantasy watercolourist but enjoys painting silk and making beaded jewellery too.

She says “As a child I dreamed of dragons and their hordes of gems. Now, as an adult, I paint the dragons and make the jewellery!”

Sharon is a popular TV artist and demonstrates Derwent products on the HOCHANDA shopping channel. She has had her own TV special. She has featured in an episode of “Fraser and Friends” as well as numerous appearances in “A Splash of Paint”. She has illustrated the covers for several books and has 2 teaching DVDs that can be purchased on her website.

Most recently Sharon has been demonstrating Fantasy Art or Silk Painting to Art & Craft Societies and Adult Education Centres around the country, offering workshops and painting holidays in Dorset for those who would like a more in depth approach.

Sharon is a member of the Bead Workers Guild and the SAA.

She travels the countryside visiting art groups to demonstrate her techniques and takes up to 6 painting holidays in Dorset every year.
