Opportunities for acquiring a Davson work of art range from a couple of thousand Australian dollars and rise into SEVEN figures.
As a business leader, collector and /or investor wanting to gain financial benefit for your family, your personal or superannuation future, and secure a place in cultural history, consider:
* The value of Davson’s art has doubled approximately every five years for some decades, driven by defined events in the artist’s career. In recent years, the rise has been more rapid.
* A painting by Davson currently holds the record as having the highest price paid for a painting by a Living Australian artist.
* Given previous history, it is very likely that Davson’s paintings will continue to progressively rise due to the scarcity of her art on the market, her international appeal, her association and profile with world record-making projects, and other initiatives.
* The provenance of Davson’s art remains in perpetuity. In book publications, catalogues, etc., the history of the art is recorded. This includes acknowledging those who have owned it, unless they choose to remain anonymous.
* Davson’s art converses eloquently with the viewer. She endeavours to assist world peace organisations, raise awareness for endangered species and benefit the broader community through her art and activities.
* Since her first sell-out exhibition in 1982, Davson has less than 100 paintings in her professional career. Many comparable artists by this time in their career have created in the thousands!
So this is a surprisingly small number for an artist who is best known for her oil paintings (and for someone who has derived their living from art).
* Also most of her art works began their lives with significant profiles, being purchased and planned prior to their creation. You see, Davson has spent the last three decades working predominantly on commission, so her art was sold before it was created.
* For the collector of rare and valued works, the above is important. For the collectors of that half a dozen or so of her paintings purely created for personal reasons, it is even more so.
These works provide a rare insight into both the tranquillity an These works provide a rare insight into both the tranquillity and turmoil of this strongly spiritual artist, unhampered by the additional facets of incorporating someone else’s perspective into a commissioned work.* Of these personal paintings, On the Ark of Salvation is certainly the most positively powerful, and acknowledged as her ‘signature’ work.* It depicts a spiritual richness that dynamically reflects Davson’s passions for our fragile and beautiful planet, her concerns for endangered species and her ceaseless yearning for world peace.* These issues are so important to Davson, that she has voluntarily spent much of her time and energy pioneering awareness strategies and activities to make a difference for our multicultural animal-vulnerable world.* And this is the reason why she has created comparably few paintings - she’s been busy doing other things, including founding two charities and a museum.* These passions and activities are the core that provides so much depth and insight within her art. They have also garnished Davson’s profile of impressive achievements in several different countries with outstanding leaders from many fields of endeavour. important background details about the artist.Origins commissioned by
World Book International, Chicago, USA - 1991Davson's professional career spans 3 decades, yet she has created quite a small number of paintings for an internationally renowned artist.Since her first sell-out solo exhibition of drawings held in Sydney in 1982, Davson has created less than 100 paintings, mostly sold before completion and housed around the world.This is an unusual circumstance for a professional artist who’s paintings frequently command high profile

During periods of economic uncertainty, various forms of investment suffer
For the Collector / Investor Appreciating quality art is enriching and rewarding
Share markets and formal superannuation plans have been a prime example in Australia in recent years. Yet the high-end Art Investment Market has continued to go from strength to strength. In Australia in 1973, the new National Gallery bought a painting by the late Jackson Pollock titled Blue Polesfor $1.3 million. It caused an outcry from the community with many so-called ‘experts’ rallying against the purchase. But if it was possible to buy that painting today, it would cost $150 million or more.Throughout history, those who could afford it have invested in quality art. For example, even if James Fairfax (or similar high-wealth Australian) lost ALL their business investments and enterprises, all real estate and other belongings, their art collections would still be worth millions. And the value of those art collections keeps rising.Did you know that James Fairfax AO and other preeminent collectors own works of art by Sharon Davson? Did you know a large percentage of the paintings by her that come onto the market are purchased as investments? Did you know that there are only about a dozen living female artists in the world whose paintings value in seven figures and that Sharon Davson is one of them?While many remain oblivious to the potential of investment in art, others only delve into the highest assured realms of past masters. Acquiring art by a well-renowned living artist reaps the best benefits when that artist is proactive and influential.
Keynote and Guest Speaking ServicesCommanding , articulate, empowered.Keynote and guest speaking is a specialty service offered by Sharon. As an artist living and working in a country with an over-riding belief system that artists don’t make money, and yet with most collectors desiring to sell art works by dead artists for fortunes, there is a great dichotomy at play. Sharon Davson, who has remained outside the traditional commercial systems for most of her life, has succeeded, lived and supported charitable initiatives from the sale of her art for over thirty years. She is Australia’s highest valued living artist, and brings to your audience great empathy with those who have ‘done it tough’, the dignity of understanding success, and the humour of compassion for all on our Earth with spiritual insight and grace.Davson is a very accomplished speaker. She has made appearances at many openings, conventions, private functions and other special occasions for the wider community. Inspiring Participation …
