I am an historian, geographer and archaeologist and use the concepts and tools of these disciplines in my fine art practice.
I favour monochrome or subdued palettes, often working with layers and incorporating photography, digital imaging, printmaking, collage and drawing. I use a wide range of source materials, including found imagery and objects, comics and magazines, product catalogues, newspapers, book pages and board games, and make 2D work, 3D sculptural and assemblage forms, artist's books and installations.
My work is widely shown and has been selected for exhibitions throughout the UK, and in New York, Venice, Vienna, Athens and Rome.
A selection of work can also be seen on Instagram @sharonhallshippartist
I am from the West Midlands and have lived in London, Sussex, Oxford, Brighton, Shropshire, Yorkshire and Lancashire. I now live and work in mid Wales.
