Sharon Greene is the creative director of Queens of Neon. She is an multidisciplinary artist and creative adventurer.
Queens of Neon: Sharon set up Queens of Neon in 2008 as a vehicle for creative adventure. Since this time she has been busy exploring all sorts of bonkers and beautiful art projects as a solo and collaborative artist and art director.
With an acute sense of style and an eye for future trends, Sharon's collaborative work has resulted in her working with many of Ireland's most dynamic creatives who together are determined to celebrate and push the boundaries of contemporary Irish culture.
Inspiration: Sharon's passion lies in connecting people through shared experience. She believes by exploring our sense of identity through art, memory, heritage, the natural environment, stories of the past present and future we can transcend the differences that keep us from connecting on a deeper level. Sharon is driven by her passion for watching ideas manifest into existence and by transforming the ordinary into the extraordinary.
Background: After studying and working in the field of building conservation as a specialist consultant for over 10 year in Ireland and the U.K Sharon's appreciation and love for the Irish natural and built landscape deepened. In her work with Queens of Neon many aspects of her approach are inspired and influenced by this passion.
Dublin Flea Market: Sharon is co-founder and organiser of the Dublin Flea Market, a monthly second-hand market in Newmarket Square, Dublin 8 that has over 80 stalls and has been running since 2008, (although presently on hiatus while looking for a new venue).
Dublin Flea Christmas Market: Sharon is the curator and creative director of the annual Dublin Flea Christmas Market. In 2018, operating for its fourth year in the Dublin Docklands, the market hosted 280 Irish-based Design, Craft, Collectibles and Artisan Food stalls and traded over 8 days. It was attended by over 73, 000 visitors. Sharon’s curation, management and promotion of the market has led to its huge success in terms of quality of merchandise and consumer turnout.
