Words like joyful and vibrant are used often to describe Sharon DeSailly's contemporary paintings. Use of brilliant colours in oils and acrylics, and bold texture are recognisable elements in her style. As a full time artist living in Bayside, Melbourne, as well as being an avid traveller within Australia and abroad, she easily finds the inspiration and drive to pay tribute to beauty in our everyday life. Through her paintings, DeSailly invites the viewer into the scene to 'be there' in an almost tactile way.
DeSailly's abstract impressionist approach lends itself to any subject. Her gallery transports the viewer from the deep perspective of a vivid seaside sunset; to highly textured trees against the intense rich hues and powerful rock formations of Kakadu and outback Australia; to beautiful fragrant flowers in riotous French cottage gardens, some captured in huge scale to highlight their amazingly detailed blooms; to a cat napping in a Tuscan farm potted lemon tree, to a flock of playful cockatoos or a magnificent, proud rooster to make you smile.
Paintings by Sharon DeSailly celebrate all living beauty. Through her wonderful, original works of art she brings joy into the homes and lives of collectors, with her artworks hanging in homes across Australia and in several countries around the world.
