I want my work to DO something - to be nurturing, inclusive and to connect on a meaningful level. Love is at the core of everything I do. I hope my works are visually pleasing, however, my intention is for them to move beyond the purely decorative and to create a connection with the viewer in a way that something is felt deep inside.
Lisa Sharpe is a high frequency intuitive artist, her artistic practice is about creating and expressing energy, uplifting emotions and vibration - making what's not physical, physical through art.
Her use of high frequency paints, which like homeopathy, are charged with bio-information add extra vibrancy and depth to her work. Scientific studies have shown how water stores information and these highly pigmented water based-paints are charged with highly structured frequency waves obtained from plants, precious stones, metals and minerals.
Through the medium of paint, colour has the ability to create its own visual language: a language which like music, bypasses the mind and connects directly to the soul - it is this language of emotions and connection which I strive to speak.
Having been involved in the world of Art & Design for over three decades as a silk shoe designer, contemporary art dealer and artist, Lisa is continually exploring ways to further expanded on her knowledge and experience by incorporating additional dimensions into her artwork through studying vibrational frequencies, the Law of Attraction and Quantum Physics.
Her artistic journey started at the age of 21 when she set up her own business designing handmade silk shoes: by the age of 24, she had become an award winning silk shoe designer, designing for the British Royal Family, European Royalty, celebrities and major fashion houses.
Lisa then went on to follow her passion for art by working for several art galleries.
In 2006, she founded Lisa Sharpe Contemporary Art: setting up a central London base at One Alfred Place, Bloomsbury where she curated large scale exhibitions in order to connect artists and collectors in a relaxed setting, her emphasis always being on sourcing the highest quality artworks with great energy, works by: Picasso; Matisse; Chagall; Miro; Warhol; Lowry; John Holyland RA; Christopher Le Brun PPRA; Kenneth Draper RA; Rob & Nick Carter; Jonathan Yeo; Paul Day; Hamish Mackie and many more.
Working with clients: Hamilton Bradshaw; Holland & Holland; Halkin Investments; One Alfred Place; Standard Chartered Bank; The Ministry of Foreign Affairs, Abu Dhabi and Tottenham Hotspur FC
However, being a Creative, Lisa always felt the pull to create her own artwork once again, and in 2014, she began focusing the majority of her time on her own artistic practice whilst continuing to work with some of her long-standing clients; she is based near Winchester, Hampshire.

In 2016, Lisa collaborated with Swiss gemologist and jewellery designer Doris Hangartner to create Gem Art Fusion: a unique concept of matching a painting with its resonating gemstone. The fusion of stone and painting creating perfect synergy together as the two became more than the sum of their individual parts. This unique alignment of two beautiful energies created a profoundly deep visual and sensory experience.
Lisa sits on art panels, charity fund-raising committees and has written numerous articles on collecting art.
