Sharon Whittle: Artist who Decided to Follow Her Heart

by Brigid Fitzgerald | The Simple Life Diaries

The city life just wasn’t feeding her soul and being an artist and free thinker she found city living to be stifling and dreamed of being surrounded by light and nature.

Sharon just decided to follow her intuition and her heart – and follow her heart as an artist.

Since taking the risk of moving away she has had sellout art shows and been taken on by a local gallery as well as being a Feature Artist – even teaching is in the wings.

She was also the first person to have a show at the Byron Bay School of Art.

Sharon moved away from Sydney with only a bag and lived like this for about a year as things fell into place and acknowledges the fear of the unknown is the biggest fear…..then it all changes.

Her courage and tenacity and termination is truly inspiring…this is so worth a listen if you are having any doubts as whether you should take the risk and leap into your dreams – she makes it sound just so easy and flowing.
