A Life of Whimsy

Living in a rural area in Salt Lake City as a child, we had to create our own fun which usually meant being outside for much of the day. The backyard was my place and I became a maker of jeweled mud pies adorned with rocks, berries, and anything that caught my eye.

Along with my mud pie obsession, I also spent hours at the kitchen table transforming coloring book pages into works of art. My color ran outside the lines, and multi-colored patterns filled my favorite animal and holiday-themed pages.

I’ve always been involved in some kind of art. Drawing, painting, printmaking, salvaged metal art, and the list goes on. I was fortunate to have a number of designs licensed for needlepoint, home products, wall art, and holiday greeting cards.

My mother taught me to sew, and I have fond memories of those times with her. She was always supportive of my art endeavors by providing pans and doodads for mud pies, lots of crayons and paper, and patience while I learned to sew ~ and making a mess everywhere!

Designing and sewing whimsical gnomes provides so much creative satisfaction and includes everything I love to do from doodling to sketching and beyond. And to think it all started with a handful of coloring books and a box of crayons ~ and hundreds of mud pies cooking in the sun all summer long

Thanks for visiting!
~ Sharon and all the little Gnomes
