Sharon Lalonde has been creating from a very early age, using all forms of artistic expression.
Since moving to the Comox Valley, in 2012, she has been able to immerse herself in painting. She has achieved Active Member status, with the Federation of Canadian Artists, in 2018 and has been recognized by the Federation, in 2019, with “Best In Show” for her painting, “Love, Connection and Memories”, in 2019.
Sharon creates painting that are energized, expressive and dynamic.
The inspiration for the generally representational works, is the challenge of rendering the energy of light, movement and life of the image she is painting.
The success of the work is measured by the degree to which the viewer experiences a sense of energy and emotion from the painting.
The uniqueness of the art she produces is her challenge. Sharon strives to make a statement about the world, in a way that has not been said before. This is achieved using collage, acrylic and a variety of mark making tools. She has started working on wood panels as they allow more flexibility with adding materials and sanding or scraping to take elements away. That part of the process is continually evolving.
Her paintings are displayed in the homes of collectors throughout Canada and internationally.
In addition to painting, Sharon is committed to supporting the community and the arts by donating paintings to Transition Society, The Hospice Society, L’Arche, The Victoria Hospital Foundation and by serving as a director on the Comox Valley Arts Council.
She can be found, most days, painting in her space at
ARTWRX Studio/Gallery Society, 362C 10th Street, Courtenay, BC.
