Today’s featured artist is Artist Sharron Okines:
I had a typical mid life crisis had no idea it would lead to me becoming an artist – went to a local art course for a year where I put together a folio. Visited our closest Art College (Chisholm Frankston), felt completely at home, went for the interview, got in, was given such a wonder-full opportunity to just explore and make art. I fell in love with oil painting and printmaking
How long have you been an artist?
4 years (since I have graduated from College)
I started a daily drawing practice late last year – I have been using my dogs as life models, so I draw them for as long as they keep still. Am up to day 335 currently. For the last month or so I have been using my non dominant hand with pretty good results. Proving that practice does indeed dramatically make so much better!
I try to exhibit as often as possible, but best to contact me via my website – sharronokines.weebly.com
