Hello! I'm Sharon Hiley, founder of the Art & Design company Sona Beam.
I graduated from Bradford College in 1997 with a 2:1 BA (Hon's) in Art and Design specialising in printmaking and textiles.
Since then I have worked within a variety of Art Gallery settings, Graphic / Greeting Card Design offices & Teaching & learning establishments.
Throughout all my experience I have continued to develop my personal Art practise and now work from the Sona Beam studio near Glenbarr, situated on the beautiful Kintyre peninsula.
I relocated to Scotland from Yorkshire with Martin King, my partner and founder of Spellbound Interiors in Spring 2019.
My work has always tended to reflect a love of colour and simplified line & pattern work.
I am ever inspired and enthused by nature and all of my work is imbued with such influence.
Both Sona Beam and Spellbound Arts / Interiors embrace and maintain an awareness of conservation, utilising FSC, reclaimed, recycled and upcycled materials as often as possible (we are continually mindful towards increasing our eco practises and outcomes.)
