Sharon started painting upon her retirement from the field of public education/ communications. She paints in watercolour, a medium she has always admired, and credits Truro area artist and teacher Nancy Crowe-Samson, helping her to improve her painting skills. She has received awards in the East Hants Fine Arts Association annual art shows. Sharon and her husband Leonard live in a rural setting near Shubenacadie. She loves to paint the natural world and enjoys the wildlife, birds, and scenery around her, which she takes every opportunity to photograph. Sharon is also inspired by the scenery on her travels. Her other major passion is music, having sung professionally in Halifax for many years. Sharon is known locally as a member and feature soloist with the East Hants Community Chorale.
