I'm Sharon. Welcome to my world, where bold, luxurious statement art is filled with philosophy, psychology and mindset, wrapped up in a beautiful piece to make you stop and think.

welcome, I'm SHARON


I’m sitting here in London at the “banned” concert wondering if there is anyone in the audience who HASN’T been touched by a higher power tonight.

Beautiful voices, bountiful energy and girls and women of all ages. Singing together the praises of the divine.

For context, several Orthodox Jewish Community leaders notified London schools and families that they banned attendance at this Bracha Jaffe Concert that I’m currently sitting in, because it encouraged the wrong messaging to girls and women in the community.

Why would Rabbinical leadership ban Jewish Female Singers from sharing their talent with the world if these women do so in a manner that complies with strict Jewish law?

We turn to more somber pastures as Chaya Kagan talks about her new song on mental health that she has named Battleground.

A little girl belts out the popular famous song “Little Neshomole – little soul” and the audience close their eyes.

I’m sitting here a bit lost.

Can you remind me why this event was banned?

Because all I see are happy joyful faces, alive in song.
