Sharon Dembo is a visual artist and child psychotherapist living in Toronto. She has been painting for over twenty five years, not only in Toronto but also in France, Italy, Mexico and both coasts of Canada. Most of her landscapes are painted “en plein air” as Sharon enjoys responding to the immediacy and intensity of this experience. Sharon feels very influenced by the impressionist and expressionist art movement. Sharon has been exhibiting and selling her work in a number of venues in Toronto over the past several years.
Over the past 10 years Sharon has explored a variety of printmaking modalities, and also used them in conjunction with other media. She feels a fascination for printmaking and the freedom it give her to explore her interest in dance and movement. Her work frequently uses textures and vibrant colours to express these dynamic gestures. Sharon compares her work in this medium to that of a child at play: a chance to be curious, inquisitive, serious and creative.
