Sharron Astbury-Petit

My work is characterised by experimentation and by a combining of media to better explore different themes, interweaving disciplines to create an individual and evolutive reality.

Largely figurative and rich in symbolism, my paintings seek to question and to pay homage to the seduction of the intangible.

I began my career as a graphic designer and illustrator in Leeds before relocating to France to concentrate on my painting. I was to work there as a professional artist for 20 years before returning to my native Yorkshire.

Medal winner in the Paris Salon of 2011, I was accepted into the Société des Artistes Français the following year. I was also made a Sociétaire of the Société du Salon d'Automne de Paris in 2019. I continue to exhibit with the Société des Artistes Français in the annual Paris Salon and am similarly a regular participant in the Salon d'Automne des Champs Elysées .

Over the years, my work has received a total of 19 awards and 3 medals and I have also been a selected artist in a variety of international exhibitions and cultural exchanges (China 2007, Belgium 2014, Portugal 2014, Denmark 2015, Japan 2019).

Work in many private collections at home and abroad.
