Sharon Helleman's work focuses on light and shadows, patterns created by trees and other natural forms. She seeks to find beauty in often humble,  overlooked, ordinary places and moments, Leaning into her love of pattern, and the interplay of light had shadows, Sharon encourages the viewer to seek beauty in the ordinary within their own experiences.

Through a layered and graphic approach to painting, she explores the rich variety of colour in the shadows, and to capture the feeling of light dancing through the leaves or shimmering  through water.
