Commenting on the occasion, Mrs. Sharma says, “This was my first exhibition, though I started painting a long time ago. Showcasing my work for the first time, I was a little apprehensive about how it will be received by the people.
But the kind of response which my work generated exceeded my expectations. What fascinated people the most was the use of different techniques of painting while not using the brushes at all. I am very touched by the encouragement I have received and this will keep me going and motivated to bring out interesting pieces of art in near future.”

Her work is a mélange of color, creativity, composition, and expressions that are finely tuned together to produce art with vitality and visual vibrancy. Her art is lyrical and gives a definitive meaning to the objects on the canvas.
