Living and working in St Mawgan, Sharon Bruster creates abstract paintings inspired by the spaces between high and low tide. Surface is a key element of her colourful work. Her experimental approach and exploration of surfaces has led her to incorporate a range of materials into her pieces, including ash, sand, marble and slate dust, household filler and plaster of paris.

In 2023 she completed a second year-long professional practice course at Newlyn School of Art. She sells work in a number of galleries in Cornwall.

She is a founder member of artists' collective Ten:22 and Prime Women Artists, a network for women artists across Cornwall.
