In the mean time Sharron Russell, began painting one day…
Sharron’s journey as an artist began in 2017, Sharron has always had an artist flare but never took it up as a business or full time job. Sharron Started painting one day as she found it Therapeutic, she had suffered with myalgic encephalomyelitis (ME) for a long time – a medical condition characterised by long-term fatigue and other persistent symptoms that limit a person’s ability to carry out ordinary daily activities.
She found a comfort in painting and one day her husband told her to paint a ‘Cow’ being born and living in the Yorkshire Dales, Sharron gave it a go and the first Quirky Cow appeared. Unbeknown to Sharron, her daughter Hannah started taking images of the Quirky cows and posting them on social media, shortly after people wanted to purchase the cows and Hannah had to break the news to her Mum.
After a little bit of convincing the brand ‘Quirky Cows and friends’ was born and has become increasingly popular over the past few years, the business is very much family run and the full collection of products can be found at Russell home interiors & Gifts in Leyburn Market town.
Sharron is often found in her log cabin in the Yorkshire Dales painting behind the scenes, while her daughter Hannah is at the front of the business with marketing, sales and wholesale orders. Sharron’s Collection of work has now expanded to other animals such as Donkeys, horses, pigs, sheep and many other characters.
Her work can be found on many kitchen products for your home, including kitchen splash backs, kitchen tiles and radiator covers.
