Read about the difference we have helped our clients create
“Lorraine and I built a modern but uniquely timeless style house, furnished it and completed landscaping but always felt that there was something missing. It was beautiful but not complete. We needed something special on the walls but didn’t know what to do. I guess it was always going to be some art but what.
That is when we came across Sharron and that is when our world changed. From just a short meeting she picked up so much about us and our environment and presented us with the solution that was, WOW! How good is this? We had a giant TV Wall Mural and 2 beautifully textured Free Flow artworks to match; a large bedroom collage and a French scenery charcoal! Who would thought our Sharron could have so much talent.
The end result was absolutely stunning and we are so proud. It has been a number of years now and I am still warmed by the sparkle she has left with us. Would we use Sharron again? Without a doubt!“

Body Corp Member & Interior Designer Tracie Dunne | Aurora Tower, 420 Queen St, Brisbane
“Hi Sharron, on behalf of The Aurora Tower Refurbishment Committee, The Body Corporate Committee and Owners, we would like to thank you for the wonderful artwork you have created for our Foyer. The owners and visitors absolutely love it and we are constantly getting compliments on how beautiful it is. It brightens and enhances our foyer and is definitely the focal point of this area. We love that you colour matched everything to create an truly integrated artwork and the theme you created for it was inspired. Again thank you very much, you are certainly a very talented artist.”

Home Decorators | Multiple Artworks
“We rented this house in 2013 until we bought it in 2015. We realised then that we needed to put our touch to the house to make it our own. With 3 niches to fill, the thought of having our own artworks came to mind. Commissioning Sharron was the best thing we did! We didn’t know what type of paintings we wanted but her process made it come to life easily and intuitively. It’s like she could read our minds. The outcome was 3 beautiful paintings that are not only part of the house but also part of us. Every time I look at the paintings I cannot thank Sharron enough for the work she’s done.”
Myriam and Andrew, Windaroo
Small business owner Kay | Residential Artwork
“Our foyer looks fantastic! Everyone comments on it, and we cannot believe it is something that we designed. You can see every detail and the work that went into it. It is just what I wanted!”
Kay, KCJ Enterprises, Bracken Ridge
Corporate educator Julie | Private Adult and Kid Workshops
“When we moved house and were looking to fill its emptiness, we decided it would be an excellent idea to have Sharron back to give us some suggestions and ideas. It has been the best decision we have made for creating the decor and ultimately the harmony in our home. Friends have said it is amazing, and the coolest thing they have seen in a long time. We have created something that’s truly ‘us’ with Sharron’s guidance.”
Julie Watson Enterprises, Petrie
Interior Designer Maree | Art for Interior Designers
“I had the pleasure of engaging Sharron to work with me on a very special gift for my son’s wedding present. I wanted something really special for their new home. It was a pleasure to deal with Sharron from start to finish. We arranged to meet at the newlyweds’ home and from there, discussed size, shape, colours, preferences, style, and budget. I have heard them tell their friends all about it, what it means, and how it works. They love it! Thank you, Sharron!”
Maree, Interior Balance, Mt Gravatt East
Residential Builder David | Hand Painted Murals
“I would like to thank you for the excellent job you have done in my pool room. Right from the outset, you were very professional in everything you did, and all your ideas were excellent. I would highly recommend Sharron and would have no hesitation in using her custom service again. Once again thank you for the superb job you have done for me.”
David Roberts, DJ Builders, Murrumba Downs
Tudor home renovators Kathleen and Andrew | Residential Artworks
“Two people with different likes can be challenging, especially when you decide to add something to your home that represents you both! So, into the scene steps Sharron, with coaxing and sketches to guide our journey, and we eventually came up with an amazing design that satisfied everyone and produced what we could only describe as a ‘one off’ unbelievable show piece for our newly renovated home. Sharron, you made the process so enjoyable and easy. Thank you!”
Kat and Andrew, Nudgee
Foyer decorators Fran and Phillip | Residential Artworks
“Sharron, the way you work! Over a coffee and a chat, going though photos, within about twenty minutes we’ve worked out a plan to change the entire look of our entry! It went very well. An old friend said what you have done for our entry was so impressive and beautiful, that you must have put so much into it. It is amazing! Thank you.”
Fran and Phillip, Kallangur
Long distance Businessman, 5 star penthouse renovators | Multiple Artworks
“Sharron, I am writing to express just how overjoyed Mailin and I are with your work. You have captured a period of our family’s life rather than attempting a faithful replica of it, which really would have aged in a few years’ time, and the style that you chose for us is truly beautiful.
Our interior designer was highly specific about our apartment’s renovation colour scheme and flowing this into the custom furnishing we had commissioned, but you took direction from these and dramatically enhanced them. Your soft and bold style and the juxtaposition of your colours combined exquisitely to create a deep and emotional characterisation of our family. Your large stairwell piece has continued the living area’s theme as a magical depiction that reveals some of the things that our family loves in life.
To think that you created this from a series of easy phone calls and a USB stick of photos is quite amazing. The process was straightforward and for me, was a highlight of the journey. I was fixed in my views of the outcome but lacked the formal abilities to express to you how I wished to achieve it. You took inspiration from our conversations, images and colour scheme, and very greatly amplified this introductory brief. It was profoundly enjoyable. I anticipate that you will bring joy through your wonderful talents to the lives of many other families and certainly in our case there is a glass of shiraz on the deck at any time you happen through town.”
Scott and Meilin, Harbour Lights, Cairns
Children’s Boutique owner Katie | Hand Painted Murals
“From our first initial contact – Sharron’s professional and creative approach was refreshing. We required our store to be warm, distinctive and classic and to reflect our desire for a child’s space truly and this she has captured this beautifully.
Her dedication and professional commitment to our shop has been exemplary and her murals can only be described in one word – magical.”
Katie Siver, Manager, Matty Moos, North Lakes
Regis Aged Care Manager, Fiona | Dementia and Aged Care Murals
“Dear Sharron, I just wanted to send through an email to pass on our appreciation for your recent dementia mural works at McKinley House and Bayside Gardens.
Both look wonderful and residents, staff and family have all had nothing but positive feedback regarding them. Many of our residents thoroughly enjoyed watching the work in progress and your professionalism while at site certainly did not go unnoticed.
Your forward planning also assisted us to communicate with residents and family effectively before the works occurring. Overall, it was a successful project that we are pleased to say will delight our residents!
Many thanks and look forward to hopefully working with you on the same venture for some of our QLD facilities.”
Fiona de Vries, National Club Services Manager, Regis Group National Office, Armadale, Victoria
Interior Designer client Margret | Artworks for Interior Designers
“Hello Sharron, as with Paul, I adore ‘Little Treasures’. It is brilliant and finishes that area (and in fact the house) to perfection. I think its effect was best summed up a little earlier when my 4 year old grandson arrived, walked into the family room and let out a squeal. When I looked at him to find out what the squeal was for he was pointing to the painting and said “Nanna, I love that, it is beautiful”. All who have seen it totally agree. Thank you sincerely for the brilliant job you have done. As Paul said, it has certainly exceeded our expectations.”
Paul and Margret, Flinders View
Corporate business owner Terry | Corporate Artworks
“Hello Sharron, wWhen we commissioned the painting I wanted something that showed the unique qualities and diversity of our country to be present on our giant map of Australia that you painted. We have visitors from overseas as well as interstate and it has been very gratifying to listen to their comments about the layout and the different interests depicted in your painting. Many photos have been taken by our visitors and it is a very welcome addition to our reception area. Much much better than a laminated topography map of the country! Thank you.”
Terry Cubit, Managing Director, Queensland Thermo King, Darra
Apartment decorator and Designer Tracie | Artworks for Interior Designers & Private Adult Workshop
“Dear Sharron, my husband Christopher and I would like to thank you very much for the Private Adult Art Workshop we did with you the other day. We had such a great time and absolutely love the result! I cannot believe we have such a wonderful piece of art that we had input into, it makes it even more special. We will not only treasure the artwork but the experience is something we will always remember.
You are such a talented lady and so generous with your time and energy and we thank you so much for helping us to great such a wonderful piece of art.”

TA Interior Designer Sandra for her Residential Client | Art for Interior Designers
“Hi Sharron, I was at Suzie’s house today for the painting, carpets and plantation shutters and saw ‘Venetian Sunrise’ and Just wanted to write and say how AMAZING your artwork is!
It is absolutely stunning!!
I could see from the images that you had previously sent through, how nice it was looking but the finished painting in real life shows another dimension again!
I feel so very privileged to be working with you and to have the opportunity to create a living space for Suzie and Phil which suits their lifestyle and does justice to your masterful artistry! Big, Big Hugs!
Sandra Dara, New Leaf Design Studios, Cinnamon Park
Home decorators Tracey and Rodney | Multiple Artworks
Dear Sharron, We love both of our artworks!! You have done a fantastic job with the two big flowers in Rodney’s Joy and love the yellow addition with the green grass! We like the black as this balances and ties the paintings together and if you feel the wine bottles need some defining lines that is fine. Boat houses are good too. We like the black on the table and sails of the boats.. it is all wow!
These artworks are both beyond our expectations and hope you enjoyed creating them. Very happy clients, thank you”
Tracey and Rodney, Rochedale South
TA and Interior Designer clients Suzie and Phill| Art With Interior Design
“Dear Sharron, we love water and we love boats and your creativity and adaptation of Phil’s photography (a holiday shot looking out over the Grand Canal in Venice at Sunrise) conjures that feeling of escape into another world, bringing something very unique and inspiring into our living room. We love everything about ‘Venetian Sunrise’, from the colour, depth and texture, to the story you have captured and the emotion that we feel as we enjoy our piece of tailored artwork. Through your inspiration, we have recreated our formal living room, working with “New Leaf Design Studios” to extend the coastal feeling of water and boating into the heart of our suburban home. So happy! Thank you.”
Suzie and Phil, Chapel Hill
HQ to facility Manager cassie, Blue Care Aged Care | Dementia and Aged Care Murals
“Hi Cassie, extremely good feedback on the fireplace mural in Strath. We have had some lovely comments from residents, staff and visitors of how much it has changed the whole atmosphere and makes the place much cosier and homelike. One staff member has on three occasions gone to place flowers upon the mantle piece so real it does look! Carmel has claimed the chair by the fireplace as hers and can always be found reading b the fire in Carmels Corner. A great result.”
Sandra Ryerson, Diversional Therapist (Lifestyle), Tarry Brae Hostel, Brookfield
Home Decorator Tasha | Multiple Artworks
“Dear Sharron, I just wanted to send a short note to thank you for the wonderful 3 artworks that you completed for us. You were an absolute pleasure to deal with and the process from start to finish was a very easy and educational one. The paintings are simply stunning and make our home come to life now. All of our friends comment on them, especially your gorgeous portrait of our daughters. I would have no hesitation in recommending you to anyone considering having an original piece of art commissioned.”
TA Interior Designer Carmel for residential clients | Art with Interior Design
“Sharron and I took Tony and Pat’s tired space to a new level of colour with their favorite Blues and Greens and a touch of the Orange reminiscent of South Africa. I had their beloved lounge reupholstered with modern geometric fabrics, added a new transitional rug, and complimentary white, teal and yellow accessories. My team refreshed the interiors feel with white washed walls and a newly fitted modern kitchen which provided better function and storage along with the luxury of a new stove, dishwasher and statement piece glass splash back. New shutters, lighting and refurbished floors and stairs set the stage for Sharron’s Artwork, ‘Life on the Meadow’.
“Our clients were extremely happy with their newly refurbished home, saying, “We are absolutely thrilled with everything and could never have achieved anything like it on our own, so a big thank you! It has all come together so well and we are really enjoying it all. Our daughter who returned home from living overseas said that she feels like she is living in a resort with all the changes!… as do we.” A great job, thank you Sharron and I look forward to working with you again for our next client.”
Carmel Reggi, Interior Designer, Touches Interior Design, Bridgeman Downs

“Love the concept of my mural and how I was invited to help to save costs and and I am very happy with the work Sharron did on my walls. Beautiful mural and I recommend her work. Thank you Sharron!
Corporate foyer and boardroom decorators Liz | Corporate Artworks
“If you are searching for the “perfect piece of art” to compliment your Boardroom / Corporate Environment, then look no further than Sharron Tancred. From our own experience there is nothing else that will compare to owning a commissioned piece of Corporate Art, by Sharron, to truly reflect your Corporate, Branding, Corporate Values and Decor – whatever it is that you want to convey.
Sharron is skilled, as an artist, but more importantly, as an excellent communicator.. She is able to ask the right questions and listen to you; she encourages and enables you to communicate the message that you want to express with your Art.
Effectively, Sharron will tap into your Corporate Heart and Soul and translate it into art for you.
We are all delighted and extremely proud of the 3 exquisite pieces of Artwork that Sharron has created to express all of this, and so much more, for our business!!!
We are advocates, not clients, and you will be too!!!!!”
Liz Irvine, Ellerfield Financial Planning, Mt Gravatt
TA and Interior Designer client Louise | Art with Interior Design
“After seeing some of Sharron’s work at the Brisbane Home Show my husband and I both felt we must have a piece of her art. The enjoyment of meeting with such a vibrant artist who actually asked questions about what appealed to us and why we were attracted to her work, convinced us Sharron was the one to create the WOW factor for our home.
The exquisite colour, passionate energy, committed detailing and a fabulous sense of humour from Sharron has absolutely captured our home and our darling, and sometimes mischievous, dalmatians. We are totally thrilled with the outcome of our masterpiece Spot Da Dog’.
Jim and Louise Stock, Stocks Appliances, Clayfield
TA Interior Designer Ella Briid | Art with Interior Design, Santorini Rocs Doc
Sharron, you are so professional, so organised, versatile and so skilled in everything you do, you are the greatest example for all Design and Decorating fields and are the example, the leader to the rest of designers and artists out there – I’m sure not only in Brisbane – you have no competition out there – perhaps one day you will need to pass your skills to others.
Ela Briid, Interior Designer
