There’s the family that you’re born with and the family that you roll with.
Sharon’s work often blurs the lines between art/craft and creepy/cute. She uses a blend of traditional craft supplies, found items, various sculpting media, and occasionally some dead animal parts to create her signature puppets, masks, plush creatures, art dolls, and customized vinyl toys. She also enjoys painting and drawing and making pretty much anything that people will pay real money for. And she likes to come up with band names.
“Dude, she’s not in a band. She hasn’t even recorded anything.”
“Shhh… Shut up, she’ll hear you!”
By day, this amazingly well-preserved woman works at Open Door Art Studio & Gallery where she helps artists with disabilities do amazing things. She is also super duper crazy obsessed with vintage toys, puppets, and dolls. The above photo features the COMPLETE collection of vintage Childcraft puppets, all manufactured in 1968 (which is also the year of Sharon’s glorious birth).
