Sharon Bamber Fine Art

Sharon Bamber is a professional pastel artist working in the interest of conservation and species preservation
Sharon Bamber is an award-winning artist living in BC, Canada. She is passionate about the natural world and spends her life out in nature, painting the Living Landscape en plein air. She travels extensively to undertake expeditions and project commissions aimed at capturing, communicating and engaging audiences in the stories of vulnerable species, places and individuals. Most recently, Sharon has completed a six-month 1000-mile walking and painting pilgrimage across France and Spain to Santiago de Compostela, painting every 5 miles along the journey.



All my life I have walked through a world full of amazement, joy and discovery. The rich diversity of the natural world that I discovered in childhood forged an emotional bond that has steered my direction in life. From a degree in zoology, through a career in habitat restoration to realising my true calling as an artist, I have worked to sustain and share this connection.

Today though, the findings of IPBES Global Assessment Report on Biodiversity & Ecosystem Services are devastating and mind-numbing in scale. For us to be responsible for the extinction of even one species horrifies me beyond measure. I refuse though, to lose hope and be overwhelmed into inactivity. Each of us has a role to play in bringing about transformational change and even the smallest of actions can start a butterfly effect.

Plein air painting is all about being in the moment and painting what you experience and feel at that exact time and place. But being faced with a scene like this, with all its beauty, noise, movement can be pretty intimidating!
