Sharron has been making things her whole life. "When you grow up poor, you have to make the things you want. " From calendars, cards and posters to jewelry, furniture and clothes, she made it. After painting and pattern making ran their course, she stumbled onto magazine collage. No money for paint – no problem, as there is plenty of color to work with in discarded magazines. She loves making things and loves puzzles. Collage allowed her to work on both. After visiting ancient mosaics in Asia, the Mediterranean, and the Middle East, she realized this is something she should be doing. Mexican, Italian and American art glass are all more tangible than shreds of paper. And they’re shiny. She also incorporates stone, ceramic and any kind of found object in her work. She has used shells, bullet casings, precious gems and Grandma’s broken china in wall, floor and countertop installations. These small boards of reclaimed barn wood are her latest attempts to Gaudi the world.
