Soft, romantic brush strokes, tender and feathery, make Sharleen Boaden’s work instantly recognisable. Her paintings evoke a mood of gentle reflection; a quiet consolation in the healing power of all that is beautiful.
Born in Pietermaritzburg in South Africa, Sharleen works from her home studio in Durban, KwaZulu Natal. Often painting flowers, she presents them in a way which celebrates their beauty. Never exact representations, her paintings nevertheless quickly absorb the viewer into the essence of their subject.
With an eye constantly open to new subjects, Sharleen maintains the integrity of her own personal style.
Adopting the motto ‘No More Fear’ Sharleen is enjoying being more experimental and open to new approaches in her work.
Sharleen’s paintings are found in many private collections and selected galleries, both in South Africa and abroad.
