working media

mixed media mixed media

Sometimes photography just isn’t enough to tell a story, so I’ll mix it up with a cacophony of media.
Sometimes there’s so much going on, the photographs get lost in the melee.
But if I get the story across, that’s a good thing.

While photographs are composed in an instant in time, my collaged pieces amass disparate imagery to create singular images where time and reality are upended.

Ever on the look-out for fresh subject matter, I stash fine art, photojournalism, slice-of-life,
and the occasional being-in-the-right-place-at-the-right-time shots in my photography quiver.

what clients have been saying

I have watched with great interest Sharon’s eye for the extraordinary in all her various work. Using mixed media she continues to expand her creative genius. I have purchased several pieces and currently am seriously interested in her studies of a New Orleans theme park after Katrina.

I have hired Sharon to work with me on corporate photo shoots as an art director on a number of occasions. Not only does she provide clear and concise instructions as to what she is after in the image we are about to create, but she welcomes my input regarding the final product (something some art directors just won’t do).
