Dave Sharps is a mixed media artist and printmaker who lives in Natland, Cumbria. His work is inspired by the Cumbrian landscape, the Scottish coastline and its islands. His mixed media work combines elements of collage, acrylic paint, ink and pastels to produce landscapes of vibrant colour. In his printmaking he explores a variety of themes through lino printing, drypoint, collograph and mono printing. He loves to explore colour and texture to depict the changing quality of light.

Dave is a member of Cumbria Printmakers and Green Door Artists and regularly exhibits with both organisations. In 2022 he exhibited at Print at the Priory held at Lanercost Priory, Cumbria and he also had a joint exhibition at the Brewery Arts Centre, Kendal with fellow printmaker Robert Finch.
