Parramatta Life Skills customer, Shirley Wong introduces this year’s ART LIFE exhibition by catching up with budding Artist, Sharrief.

As Northcott’s Parramatta Life Skills Program counts down the days until their ‘ART LIFE – Unleashing the Potential Within’ exhibition, Sharrief Elkanj, a Northcott customer prepares to show what he can do.

The 24 year old will have his artworks on display at this year’s event. Sharrief has a passion for art and is excited to share his works at the two day exhibition.

“To be able to express myself and unleash my creative potential is such an awesome and empowering thing for me,”

“There is so much of me in my work – My emotions, my dreams, and my passions. It’s my way of expressing who I am,”

“I feel very blessed to have people coming and seeing our work. It’s a project we are very proud of and are excited to share with you,” said Sharrief.
