Studio Sneak Peek : Sharon B Design

A Sneak Peek? What's this? Chatting over tea at HQ one day, we were marvelling at how lucky we are to work with such an array of wonderful designers, and in doing so get to know them, their spaces, people and pets. Suddenly we thought, "We should share them!" and voila! we now have a spot on the blog for Studio Sneak Peeks!
With a background in film and advertising, Sharon Boonzaier is an established artist and designer, who explores a wide variety of creative mediums ranging from drawing and oil paintings to murals and lighting. There is magic in the simplicity of her tea-light shades which effortlessly turn her sketches into quiet, contemplative 3D objects.

Sharon often creates artwork that celebrates South Africa’s indigenous fauna and flora and urges the viewer to make steps towards protecting it. She is one of the founding members of The Concious Art Collaborative, a group of artists, designers and film makers who contribute to finding solutions for conservation.
Sharon's studio is an enchanting space to visit! Shelves are stacked high with palettes, textured papers and canvases, and work tables decorated with glass bottles of coloured inks and paintings paused in completion while layers dry. She often holds art classes there, and it's a treat to hear her talk about her own work, the new directions she is exploring and the passion she has for portraying the beauty of nature.
