ART THERAPY BY SHAR

ABOUT ART THERAPY BY SHAR

Shar Stock is a life-long doodler who took a deeper dive into her creativity as a source of therapeutic healing after two major losses in her life. The sudden loss of her boyfriend, followed by losing her 19 year old cousin to suicide threw Shar into a head space she’d never experienced before and she needed a way to process.

Using oil ink pens and watercolour paints, Shar creates intricate designs which serve as a form of meditation for her. She combines mandela design, line drawings of human figures, plant life and quotes to create designs that range from deeply emotional to down right humourous.

She founded ART THERAPY, an annual event that was created, in part, to honour the memory of both her late boyfriend and cousin. These events bring local artists and businesses together for a beautiful evening of entertainment, auctions, raffles and connection. Witnessing the aftermath of a suicide has given Shar a fiery passion to bring more supports and resources to young people who may be struggling with their mental wellness, in her community.
