Interdisciplinary artist facilitates artistic creative process in sculpture, drawing, & installation art.

I am an interdisciplinary artist and creativity coach with 25 years of teaching experience to adults and children in various sculptural techniques. My expertise is in figurative and abstract work that can be executed in clay, metals, and mixed media. I focus on the creative process that involves exploration and experimentation in the medium of choice. I introduce basic and intermediate tools and resources as individuals progress with projects. I utilize documentation of my artistic practice for individuals to understand more about their own creativity.
I listen, observe, and honor an individual's creative vision through support and the presentation of my artistic experience and skills.

Sharon's Practical information

I teach drawing, sculpture. Lessons are available for the following levels: beginner, intermediate

I give lessons in person at the student's home.

I give lessons by webcam.

Sharon's Experience

I founded an untraditional sculpture studio, and taught over 5,000 students during the span of 15 years, in the areas of figure drawing, figure sculpture, plaster mold making, bronze casting, and mixed media sculptures. I also offered classes and workshops in creative exploration where students were able to explore various mediums to determine what processes excited them. I continue to work one on one with artists, professional and amateurs of all ages, who want to expand their artistic practices by crossing over to learn other mediums.
I have been fortunate to have had great success with students in teaching and inspiring them to know that they are creative and have the capacity to create amazing work.
