Sharon Monagle

I am an abstract expressionist and figurative painter with no formal training but a passion for painting and a daily art practice

I am fascinated by the human experience – how we relate to ourselves, to others and to our environment. I am often trying to capture in my work some essential element of these relationships.  I believe that images, and the words we put around them, can reframe our experiences and help us to find meaning in a world that can often be hostile, contradictory and controlling.  

My paintings are held in private collections across Australia, in the UK, France, Canada, Singapore and the USA. 3 of my paintings remain in the permanent collection at Chateau d' Orquevaux, France.
