    "Sharon's photography is breathtaking. At once it grips your attention but it also serves to inspire. The artwork for my next album consists of 2 images created by Sharon - and I could not have asked for a greater contribution from anyone. Thank you Sharon and continue to be the visual poet that you are."

    "What can I say about Shazza? There's an enormous pride in her pix, she has a nice little group of kiddies to her exposure - and she uses them well in her ideas, her lurvly and colourful pix.

    The main theme might be pink - but Shazza uses them well, and never over PS any of her shots.

    Inspiration can always be found on her stream, check it out - if u r lucky, u might even get invited to a flickr party or two :) :)"
