Drawings are hand drawn on paper using mechanical pencils for light sketching and fineliner ink pens which are waterproof and fade proof. I prefer using these tools because they are so versatile, allowing me to create simple to complex line art, dotwork and silhouette drawings. I love the smooth flow of the ink when it is applied to paper, coloured markers are also used in some of my drawings. I have made some designs digital for printed products on Redbubble.
My name is Sharon Godwin and I am a nature inspired fantasy/surreal artist specialising in small scale pen and ink drawings. My love for drawing is apparent since a young age and has been ever since with an obsession for fine detail. Ideas usually come easily to me, even more so when out in natures landscape with a fresh breeze on ones face helps clear the mind, allowing thoughts to run wild and imaginative ideas to take shape, long walks outdoors is ideal for health and wellbeing. Nature is my main source of inspiration absorbing it's beauty, the shapes, textures and colour. Surrounded by nature and the wildlife I am fascinated by all living things. I also take photographs of anything I find of interest and I'm also inspired by the decorative arts, textile design and architecture. I create unique and unusual drawings that are surreal, whimsical and fantasy fuelled. When it comes to art, I am open minded and love the freedom of expression. My style of drawing can be time consuming depending on the complexity of a design and specially when creating dotwork but it is also therapeutic and I enjoy it immensely.
