Biographical Info

“I am a fiber artist and have been interested in weaving since I was 10 years old; when I sat on the basement stairs and watched my mother weave rugs on two big floor looms.  Like her, I weave rugs, scarves, and table linens on the big floor looms, one of which was hers!  I use my intuitive sense of color and texture together with my love of nature to create handwoven, functional fibers for people to use and enjoy.  I weave with passion, peace, and positive energy, hoping that these qualities will surround and embrace all who use, wear, and walk on my creations.”

Sharon work can be seen at the Weavers Guild of Minnesota and Textile Center in Minneapolis, MN
