“Being a budding young artist since an early age, my family and world around me were my main inspirations growing up; traditional drawings with pencil and paper were the majority of my works eventually moving into acrylic paint.
As I grew, so did the influences of my artworks, movies and computer games became a major influence in my work, and thus introducing me to the world of digital art that has been my “weapon of choice” as it were for the last seven years”. To visit Sharna’s facebook page please click here.
