Sharon Taylor Paper Cuts

Sharon was born and raised in Leeds, and has rarely been seen without a pencil in hand ever since. She studied art at Leeds College of Art & Design before going onto Bradford University.

Never one to restrict herself to a single discipline, Sharon has an eclectic range of talents and interests, including Painting (Oils & Egg Tempera), Silverpoint drawing, Silhouette Illustrations, Sculpture, Wood turning, Pyrography and even glass bead making.

She worked as a 3d artist on computer games for licenses such as The Simpsons and Shrek, before switching from virtual 3d to real 3d and working as a model maker for Hot Animation. Here she had fun making puppets, props and sets for shows such as Bob the Builder, Pingu, Rubbadubbers and Woollywoos.

Sharon now runs a bespoke sculptural and model making service crafting highly detailed and individual figurative celebration models and in store displays. She’s even made monster eyes and teeth for a SFX company. However, in recent years her work has shifted more into portraiture work, which she loves.

Whether its 2d or 3d, paint, clay or wood, it doesn’t matter, as long as she is creating and making a mess, she is happy.
