Sharon Davson is an internationally acknowledged leader in spiritual and environmental art.
Davson has art in about 40 public collections in Australia, Japan and New Zealand. These are mostly works on paper, however, her paintings in the Museum and Art Gallery of the Northern Territory, Darwin, Australia and the Hikaru Memorial Museum in Takayama, Japan. She is also represented in royal, celebrity and corporate collections in various countries.
Two major retrospective exhibitions of her art have toured in public regional art galleries; With Gratitude for the Light (1999-2003) and Davson ~ World Leaders & Enlightenment (2008-2011).
For an artist, there is no greater recognition of achievement, than having a public art gallery in their original hometown bear their name; for Davson that is the Davson Gallery, in the Lockyer Valley Cultural Centre, Gatton QLD, Australia.
In 1992, singing legend Neil Diamond launched her Hands Up project with her. Since then, over 400 world leaders in their fields from World Champion Sportspeople, Academy Awarded Film Stars, Music Legends, Celebrities and Dignitaries, and even Space Shuttle Astronauts have participated with her initiatives for a better world.
Davson studied at the Queensland College of Art, Brisbane, 1972-1974. In the following year, she gained her teaching diploma and taught art in the 1970’s, resigning all teaching positions in 1980. She then embraced a range freelance opportunities. Since 1984, Sharon Davson has been a fully professional artist living by the sale (mostly pre-sale) of her art in Australia and elsewhere.
