Sharon Strydom

Having grown up in a village on the West Coast Sharon spent her days swimming in the sea and cycling. It was an idyllic childhood and at an early age Sharon discovered her talent for drawing and painting. At 15 Sharon spread her wings and went to boarding school at La Rochelle Girls School in Paarl where she started art as a subject. In matric her art teacher sent a few of her paintings to UCT and Sharon was awarded a bursary to study art which the immaturity of youth made her decline. More than 25 years later, after her children had grown up and she had sold her business, Sharon picked up a paint brush again. Over the years Sharon has attended classes and workshops given by some of the finest artists and art teachers in South Africa viz. Marcelle Lyons, Hennie Niemann Snr, Louis Jansen van Vuuren, Lindy Watercayn, Ryno Swart and Kerri Evans and from the USA, Judith Carducci and Barry-John Raybould and Martin Campos and most recently Andrew James of the Royal Society of Portrait Painters. Sharon is a member of the South African Society of Artists. “How lucky can one be to learn from these masters who so generously give of themselves to help and nurture us novices on our journey of self- exploration and search for that elusive brush stroke or ray of light” Sharon’s paintings can be viewed at Stellenbosch Art Gallery, Walker Bay Art Gallery in Hermanus, Lindy Van Niekerk Gallery in Welgemoed and Imibala Gallery in Somerset West.
