All Daughters

All Daughters is a collection of abstract paintings in response to the young women who have found support and refuge by the Hope and Light charity.

As nearly 1.2 million children are trafficked in South-East Asia every year, Sharon’s work intends to encapsulate the trauma these strong girls have been subjected to, but also the hope that safe work and security can bring. Abstract and minimalistic, using careful and refined palettes and mark-making to convey the emotional experiences, Sharon’s work delicately and tastefully communicates each girls testimony. Working closely with ‘Hope and Light Jewellery’, each painting will be accompanied with a piece of jewellery made by the individual and a small extract from their story.

‘These are real stories, of real women. The are not pieces of art, they are stories of a broken world.’ – Sharon Canning
