About Monique Sharp
I was born and raised in Geneva Switzerland, where I did most of my general studies both academic and artistic. Artistically, I commenced hand painting on ceramics, initially as an occasional hobby but very quickly I realised that this was a most rewarding form of art and decided to widen and improve my skills in various techniques. To achieve this, I followed a 2 year course at Geneva’s Art College, studying mainly the fine detail and art of European Porcelain painting. Somewhat later, this was followed by a course in England studying porcelain restoration, thereafter majoring on the restoration of finely detailed Meissen figurines.
Over the years, I have branched out and acquired more modern techniques in alternative art forms, turning more towards the abstract world. Painting on canvas has been one of them, then more recently I discovered “Resin Art” painting with its various techniques and mediums as an abstract work. It is certainly very different to conventional work but very exciting and also extremely rewarding, if not always completely predictable.
