Sharka is a visual artist from North Vancouver. She paints varied subject matter, though she most often focuses on her favourite animal, cows.
Her work is recognizable by its combination of composition, unusual subject matter and detailed style.
Sharka paints cows because they have a strong presence that makes most people smile. Her emphasis on capturing the affection and personality in the subject’s face shows through every time. This is accomplished by focusing on the colours, the eyes and of course, an interesting pose.
Her art is a journey, and she tries to expand her horizons every year.
Sharka also likes to inspire others through teaching. To see someone unlock their creativity, is its own reward!
Sharka’s studio is open by appointment.
