Introducing Sharon Gill, Arts Consultant
My working life has been focused on enabling and facilitating in the voluntary sector, community and the arts, working as an artist, running workshops and residencies, project and studio management and curating. I have chaired a women’s art group and been commissioned to make work for a variety of clients. This has provided the luxury of job satisfaction and opportunities to exhibit in the UK and abroad.
I am based in Sheffield and currently work in Rotherham, and I have been involved in projects primarily in Yorkshire and the north of England. My current roles are CEO of ROAR and Chair of BEAM.
If you scroll down to contacts you will find links to the organisations and projects I have been involved with, and to my linkedin page with my full professional history.
Otherwise you will find a small selection of images from my personal creative endeavours here. It is a snap shot to demonstrate the range of techniques and media I use rather than being a comprehensive back catalogue.
My fascination with textiles and fibre are currently enjoying an explosion of colour and pattern through traditional quilting techniques. Having recently worked on a heritage project, looking into the past and how we represent today for the future, I have come to consider a quilt as contemporary archiving. The therapeutic nature of the activity, of most stitching and other textile construction techniques, only reinforces my belief in the ability of the arts to generate well-being.
