If you are interested in buying a painting please contact me with the name of the piece you like and I will forward the details. Payments are by bank transfer.
Within the UK pieces are sent by Parcelforce (Royal Mail) or a courier depending on size and weight. All shipments are tracked and require a signature.
If you’d rather collect in person I’m based in Milton under Wychwood which is near Burford in the Cotswolds, UK.
Timing and quotes dependent your location.
I regularly work to commission and particularly enjoy the collaborative aspect of working with others to create an artwork to fit their brief. I’m used to visualising and working with art directors as my background is in illustration.
Please contact me initially on email@example.com to discuss your ideas and we can chat them through. I will provide initial design ideas and options on size and price before we decide on the final project.
Payment is the same as with my other artwork. Commissions are not more expensive once a project and deadline have been agreed a 20% deposit will be required before work commences and you will be kept informed of progress.
Sharon Williams is a professional artist and illustrator with over 25 years of experience, based in the Cotswolds, UK.
I trained at Harrow Art College, University of Westminster (BA hons Illustration) & was represented by one of the leading illustration agencies (Advocate Art) before becoming a professional fine artist. I specialised in producing artwork for paper products, greetings cards, magazines, fine art prints and children's books.
Since moving to the Cotswolds and having a family I've relished creating paintings for exhibition and have especially enjoyed working on larger paintings as illustrations tend to be small. My style and technique have developed significantly and have consolidated during this period of exploration. My influences are wide and varied and are often drawn from the beauty of the local landscape. Portraits remain a particular interest for me and I enjoy the creative battle of capturing both a likeness and the 'essence' of the sitter.
I paint expressively in both oil and acrylic using multiple layers, marks and textures which are often scraped back to reveal contrasting colours beneath or partially obscured by further layers. This produces an interesting and textural finish and I'm often influenced by the 'chance' mark or colour combination.
I also mentor and tutor a diverse group of eighteen artists in Farnham, Surrey and find their enthusiasm and accomplishments rewarding and a source of inspiration (and definitely worth the travelling time!)
I have recently begun working on a series of large scale 'ICONS' portraits and they are exhibited at Opal Fine Art in Stratford upon Avon, UK.
I've sold Cotswold landscapes through The Gallery, Burford Garden Company & portraits, hen paintings and landscapes through Wychwood Art Gallery in Deddington. I exhibit regularly with my art group at The Farnham Pottery, Wrecclesham, Farnham, Surrey.
I regularly work on private commissions.
