Sharron’s journey as an artist began in 2017. Sharron has always had an artist flare but never took it up as a business or full time job. Sharron Started painting one day as she found it Therapeutic, she had suffered with myalgic encephalomyelitis (ME) for a long time – a medical condition characterised by long-term fatigue and other persistent symptoms that limit a person’s ability to carry out ordinary daily activities.

She found a comfort in painting and one day her husband told her to paint a ‘Cow’ being born and living in the Yorkshire Dales, Sharron gave it a go and the first Quirky Cow appeared.

 

Unbeknown to Sharron, her daughter Hannah started taking images of the Quirky cows and posting them on social media, shortly after people wanted to purchase the cows and Hannah had to break the news to her Mum....
