Suzy Sharpe - Wild Birds

Suzy Sharpe’s practice includes painting, drawing, printmaking and sculpture of landscape, wildlife, and animals with a contemporary twist. She lives in rural west Cornwall, UK, where a variety of non human animals, including livestock, pets and wildlife punctuate her days and inspire her work. Suzy explores, questions and celebrates the relationships between humans, animals and the natural environment.
