Most of her work is gouache and pastel, her technique is fresh and direct. The use of gouache enable Sharpe to work in a great diversity of places while she travels and explores different topics such as architectural spaces, urban lifespan, and portraits. In other interview published in 2011 by Jan Allsopp in the web page “The Artling”, Sharped admitted that she loves gouache because it is paint and she loves it. She also likes it for its versatility, by manipulating it, you can produce washes that are nearly as translucent as watercolour but it can be dense and dark as well. Her works are never perfect, they are uneven and awkward, but are painted with such delight that one might ignore almost any imperfection in her technique and masterpiece.
