Sharon Beavan
Full Bio/CV
"I think that painting and drawing are about some sort of organisation, be that emotional or more detached. Drawing from observation helps us become sensitive to the composition of the world around us, and i like to draw in different ways and forge a personal dialogue with what I see and feel around me. I like the rigour of focussing intensely on what is in front of me but also the poetry of what happens between looking, feeling, imagining and remembering. I think the most exciting drawings and paintings communicate a sense of personal liberation and connection with the world."

Sharon Beavan trained at St Albans, Falmouth and the Royal College of Art. She won the Cheltenham Open Drawing Competition (1994) and was highly commended in the Eastern Open Art Competition (1996). Sharon has exhibited widely, most recently in the two person show ‘Meeting Points’, with Gethin Evans at the Royal Drawing School, ‘The Architecture of London’ at the Guildhall Art gallery and the Royal Academy Summer Show, where her painting ‘Vaping Man’ was voted Painting of the Day’ in 2019. In 2016 Sharon curated Short Stories, an exhibition of work by Frances Edmonds, Mary Mabbutt and her own work. She taught for many years on the Foundation courses at Byam Shaw School of Art, Wimbledon School of Art, University of Hertfordshire, City & Guilds of London Art School and North Hertfordshire College. Sharon also taught on the Fine Art BA course at Kingston University. In 2012 Sharon became a co founder of the Foundation Year at the Royal Drawing School where she currently works as co course leader with Gethin Evans.
