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 has developed a deep appreciation and love for the Irish natural and built landscape. In her work with Queens of Neon many aspects of her approach are inspired and influenced by this previous work, including the constant exploration of non-traditional use of space.
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. The annual December market The Dublin Flea Christmas Market with 150 stalls runs over 4 days in exciting underused spaces in the city and promotes some of the best design and craft innovators in the country. It was attended by over 35, 000 visitors in 2017. Curating, managing and promoting the markets has led to their huge success in terms of quality of merchandise and consumer turnout. The markets also bring a much needed vibrancy to underused quarters of Dublin City and operate as an incubator for Irish enterprise.
