Hey Sharon, tell us about your work!

My still life work has evolved to a place of exploring the relationship between textures and objects, connectivity and tension/balance. My approach to still life, and even on-figure work, is a very sculptural one - using unexpected shapes, objects and textures to create a harmonious structure. I find that within this practice, I tend to gravitate towards themes like intimacy, sexuality and introspection, using objects and sometimes human figures.

How did you get started?

For a long time, I have found comfort in making still lifes and photographing them. I suppose it was an early way of exploring feeling through the arrangement of objects. While spending long days in the laboratory doing research for my Master's thesis (in biology and integrative physiology), I looked forward to coming home and arranging a still life to photograph. I kept this hobby for around 4-5 years while I worked in the medical research field, and eventually made the leap into full-time photography. That was already around 10 years ago!

Where do you find inspiration?

Most of my inspiration comes from sculpture (Brancusi, Noguchi and Hepworth), texture/material, design and architecture.

What advice would you give to your younger self?

To embrace who you are and to be yourself no matter what anyone may think or say!

Tell us a fun fact about yourself.

A few random facts are - I collect clay vessels and sculptures; I speak French and also I am an interior design fanatic and designing a piece of furniture!
