Suzy Sharpe Spring & Summer events

I hope that you are well. I have a busy few months ahead further details and examples of new work are on my website.
28th May – 5th June – Open Studios at Hillside Farm

Only a week away!!!  We still have plenty to do to get ready for visitors, but I thought I would help with directions by painting a flock of crows on the side of the the house, so you cant miss us now!.
We will have works in progress and sketch books available for you to browse through, I will also be selling lots of my drawings and paintings on paper at much reduced prices. I produce hundred of drawings which never make it into frames because they don’t fit in with the themes of my exhibitions, so I thought it would be a good time to have a clear out….bargins to be found!!! Paul will also be demonstrating his techniques.
It will be an opportunity to meet the animals which become the subjects of many of my paintings, we will have free flowing Coffee, tea and biscuits and if you would like to draw the horses, sheep or any other animals please feel free to bring materials and spend an hour or so here.

Spring Newsletter

Exhibitions April & May

I wanted to let you know about four very different exhibitions that I have coming up. If you would like further details please visit my website and if you have Facebook you can keep up with news as it happens! on my business page

it all starts with……

Morvah Schoolhouse Gallery

9th – 22nd April

This is a joint exhibition of new work with Coral Spencer, we are holding a Private View on the Sunday the 10th April to which you will be very welcome Coral and I have exhibited together before but not for around 4 years so this is an exciting opportunity for us. 

Coral describes her interests as lying in the cycle of life and death, the process of decay and how that feeds the earth and ultimately life. With her use of a limited palette of colour she attempts to encapsulate the peace and tranquillity that most of us try obtain. She often incorporates the human form with found materials, interweaving them, portraying that we are an integral part of the word we inhabit. Coral can be contacted on tel: 01209 203907 email <a href="" style="color: #3b5998; font-size: 14px; font-weight: normal; text-decoration: underline;" title="

Open Studios at Hillside Farm

28th May – 5th June

Paul & I are taking part in Open Studios again this year, after a very successful 1st year (2010) at Hillside Farm.  This is a great opportunity to see our work in progress, sketch books and work that doesnt get on to a gallery wall….in my case 100s of sketches and small paintings that I never seem to get round to framing.

Paul will also be demonstrating his techniques and it will be an opportunity to meet the animals which become the subjects of many of my paintings, we will have free flowing Coffee, tea and biscuits and if I can find time I may run a drawing workshop….but I will keep you informed nearer the time.

I look forward to see you soon
