Some Paintings From University, Year One


  1. Your work has such strong character and style, I like the combination of figuration and the contemporary colour palette. The paintings are very vibrant creating emotive artworks! Good stuff!!!!

  2. I totally agree with rachel, and what i like the most about your work, is your "style" you have your own style which I can see it being exhibited in famous museum in the future!

  3. Love the Jewish man, he's so cool. Tefillin is so expertly crafted, and you can really see the expression on his face.

    Even though I am not an artist (far from it), I appreciate the drawings. Kol Hakavod! Keep it up!

  4. Great keep up the good work, what a fancy site too



Hi Viewers and welcome to my blog.
My name is Amy Sharpe and I am a contemporary artist from London.

I am using this blog to present a collection of my art work over the years, during my practice as an artist. My paintings are mostly figurative and oil based.

Feel free to have a look at my work, revisit my blog, and contact me at any time, as I will be revealing my latest work, and ideas on a regular basis.

Thank you, 
Amy Sharpe


About Me

My photo
London, United Kingdom
I am a twenty two year old contemporary artist from London, who has a passion for painting figurative work, with influences in Greek mythology, religion, culture and especially old family photographs. I am an Art and Design graduate from Leeds University where I am currently preparing for my degree show. My paintings have been described as very colourful, and that my work has a unique style about it, sometimes distorted with exaggerated character traits and expressions. I like to work from photographs using models who are close to me, family members, friends or even sometimes myself.
