From a very young age, Sharon expressed her creativity through the visual arts. After graduating from Boston University’s College of Communication, her first career began in documentary filmmaking and proceeded to online media. After 15 years in the industry, she longed to engage directly in social change efforts. Sharon left media, traveled around the world, became a Hospice Volunteer at Hospice of Southern Maine and earned a Masters in Social Work degree at Boston University with a focus on aging. For the next 15 years she worked on large scale, federally funded multi-stakeholder projects in the fields of elder abuse, neglect and exploitation across Maine and nationwide; followed by health care navigation with the Immigrant and Refugee communities living in Maine. As a working mother of a son on the Autism Spectrum, Sharon also started an Autism Parent Support Group. She maintained her practice of numerous artistic endeavors including experiential sculpture, bead weaving and photography. Sharon now combines her entrepreneurial spirit with her artistic talents to run a mission driven business. Her collections can be found in museum and gift shops and boutiques across the U.S. She is a winner of the SCORE Maine Woman Owned Business of the Year. She works in her home studio in South Portland, Maine with her husband and teenage son.
