Following an exhibition at The Atkinson Gallery and Museum in 2019, Sharon was offered a commission from Mersey Care NHS to create some art work to be installed in the newly built hospital for mental health in Southport.  

In conjunction with the production of the two artworks, Sharon also led a number of workshop activities over two months engaging with Sefton Young Carers from the area. During the workshops the children created paintings, developed ideas for printed t-shirt designs, and produced decorative boxes.

 

Hartley Hospital combines local mental health inpatient care and related community services. There are 40 bedrooms and patients have access to inner garden courtyards, therapy and activity areas. There is also a short-term assessment suite, on-site café for patients, visitors and staff, a family visiting room, sacred space, gym and outpatient services. Sharon created two artworks on canvas 120cm x 50cm to be placed in the family visiting area of the hospital.  The works produced were created in response to the planned internal areas will of the hospital which were to reflect qualities that connect it to the Sefton coastline,
