Hello, my name is Shar√≤n Cohen & I am a Shenley-based fine artist. My abstract and organic style celebrates the beauty, the flow and expressive qualities of lines, shapes and colour. I am particularly inspired by themes of Love, Mothering, my Family, Yoga & the human figure. I think closely about the female spirit & her inner strength & explore how we embrace the joys & challenges of everyday Life.
I am also a private Art Tutor, teaching both adults & children, specialising in GCSE, ALevel & portfolio support. One of the most important characteristics of Art is self-expression discovering and communicating your ideas and feelings, through visual forms responding to who you are and to what you see. This is what takes place in class, in a warm, comfortable, non-judgemental and relaxed environment, where your artistic skills are able to surface and develop. Most of all, this is a fun and happy experience! Classes are spent learning, exploring and practising a variety of drawing and painting techniques using a mixture of materials, such as pencils, pastels, charcoal and paints. You create expressive pieces of artwork which may be realistic and well-proportioned observational studies or wildly abstract and spontaneous. Through discussion and sharing of ideas, you or your child start to really look and see carefully everything around you, in a new and refreshing way objects, people and their faces, the natural and built-environments and images, their lines, tones, textures, shapes, forms, patterns and colours.
I am also a Yoga Teacher. Authentic & Restorative Yoga Practice. Physical Postures, Breath Awareness & Relaxation. Please see my website for further details about classes :)
