About Sharen-Lee McLachlan

I have loved creating art since i was a child. About 8 years ago I started my first airbrushing course & I have been specialising in this genre ever since.
I particularly love to paint animals - I love the depth that airbrushing gives my animals.
My sister and I started an art studio 2 years ago and I taught her to airbrush too - we are hooked by the mesmerising sound of the air.
Most of my pieces are over 1 metre in size and make quite a statment to the viewer.
I have had many successes over the last 2 years including being named the Official Artist for AWAMO (Australian War Animals Memorial Organisation) where I have done several commissions as well as illustrating 2 childrens books (one published).
I am so proud to have been both a winner and finalist in several national and international competitions during this time and have been twice published in magazine publications.
I feel so blessed to be able to create with my airbrush on a daily basis and enjoy doing commissions for my clients too.
I hope you love my work as much as I love creating it.
