Sharon Bischoff is originally from Eastern Cape, but grew up and was educated in Zimbabwe.
She studied art at the Natal University of Technology in 1974 - 1978 (Higher Diploma in Art )and began a teaching career thereafter at various High Schools around South Africa.

Proceeded to then study Graphic Design (silkscreen and printmaking) under many significant and well known South African artists.

She has worked in retail and marketing and with her involvement in many art disciplines through the years it has allowed her work on a full time art basis.


"I am a "figurative fine artist" living and
working in a home studio gallery space. In my work, I combine the visual, technical and conceptual.

Making marks go beyond just being a technical exercise, but making visible the character of the person portrayed.

It is the actual act of drawing, of making pencil marks alive, of pulling and pushing the person into a a living space, TO MAKE THE ACTUAL LINES SAY SOMETHING that forces you, the viewer to look at the figure and to see not just a person but something intangible.

The works are characterized by good
draughtsmanship and a mixed technique of graphite, water pencils and acrylic.

My drawings are larger than life size which
gives them a monumentality while
simultaneously incorporating strong emotive elements. The visual impact of that duality
within a single image cannot be appreciated without seeing the actual work .. "
