Sharyn started painting several years ago with the encouragement of a friend when they went to a demonstration at the Shearer’s Arms in Geelong. Pastels were her first choice, but she has since tried other mediums and enjoyed them all. Some of Sharyn's paintings have been sold locally and she has had commissions which are now in Brisbane and Noosa.
