Sharon Bernhardt - "Rooftops"
W: 420mm x H: 297mm
Approx. Weight: 0.25kg
This work is unframed
I was inspired by the beautiful and colourful rooftops of Cinque Terra and felt compelled to put brush to paper using bright paints to create the life and happiness of this lovely village.
I was born in London, but came out to Africa when I was one year old. My father was an engineer and so we lived in many, many parts of Africa - some of which were extremely remote. Until the age of 5, I barely spoke English, but was fluent in a variety of the local tongues. When I was 12 and living near the border of Uganda and Tanzania a boating accident made it necessary for me to swim across the Kagera river in full flood, thus earning me my native name "Samaki", Swahili for "Fish". I sometimes use this name on my paintings. But my love of Africa with its treasure chest of colours, smells, sounds, diverse peoples and wildlife is well-ingrained and Africa will always be my first passion.
Well-covered up to degree level
