A little bit about me
Hello there and welcome. My name is Sharon Bruton. I am an art director, narrative designer and spatial storyteller.
Storytelling and design have been my love ever since I can remember, from my parents being called to school for a drawing of the nativity being dive-bombed when I was four, to a fever-driven comprehensive 10,000+ word survival plan written for escaping the zombie hordes, including maps, bear training and a Kia C’eed. My brain crafts stories around everything. That said, I initially studied Robotic Engineering but after a few too many electrical fires and a melted Kermit the Frog puppet, I decided that was not where my talent lay. I went back to art school and took a B.Des in Production Design with a minor in Sculpture.
On a personal level, I am from the gloriously sun kissed island of Ireland. I like to design and make art toys, write and develop animations, write irate emails on mental health representation to news agencies and continuously disprove the notion that everyone can surf. I have an eclectic knowledge base that is hit or miss on quiz nights, that said, if the subject is cephalopods we are on to a winner. I have no baking skills, but have a strong tasting game and controversial opinions on pandas.
