Let me introduce you to Sharon. This girl has it in aces, spades, clubs and hearts. A respected business woman who has so many skills, they are oozing out of her. Seriously. A well -respected individual she is and has just been just so lovely and gracious and friendly beside Bendy in the market. Bendy even feels calm and peaceful in her presence and this is incredibly unusual. I need to find out why that is. So here she is….this amazingly talented lady, her story, her links and everything online. You need to see her work in real life to get the gist of how proper good it is! Seriously! You also need to meet her in person too. Honestly Bendy feels like she’s from another world… Sharon is one of the only 2 creatives she has linked to her market page on her site. That’s saying something!
I shall let her talk now...
‘’WHAT is this life if, full of care, We have no time to stand and stare?—
No time to stand beneath the boughs, And stare as long as sheep and cows: No time to see, when woods we pass, Where squirrels hide their nuts in grass: No time to see, in broad daylight, Streams full of stars, like skies at night: No time to turn at Beauty’s glance, And watch her feet, how they can dance: No time to wait till her mouth can Enrich that smile her eyes began?
A poor life this if, full of care, We have no time to stand and stare’’
(WH Davies – Leisure)
Sharon Regan enjoys riding horses, walking dogs, exploring the countryside and seashore, stopping and staring as she goes and it is this that inspires her work. She aims to bring the outdoors indoors with her ceramic sculptures of animals, the texture she adds highlights the strength and fragility of her subjects.
A graduate of Ulster University with a BA in Contemporary Applied Arts, Sharon is passionate about what she does and shares her love of the medium and subject by holding regular classes and workshops, she will even bring a creative party out to your own home for groups of 4 or more.
