Mosaics had a hold on Sharon right from the start. She had been searching for a creative means of expression, different from the music she had been playing for the previous 35 years. While she enjoyed playing the string bass in community orchestras, she wanted her voice to be heard.
When she took that first mosaics workshop with artist Jackie Stack-Lagakos, she realized that she found her creative passion. Falling in love with mosaics meant also falling in love with glass. And she hasn’t stopped making glass mosaics since.
She has had the continued good fortune to hone her skills under great teachers. Along with Jackie, she has learned under Jonathan Mandell, Gina Huber, Laurie Mika, and Carol Shelkin, as well as many others.
Living in South Jersey, she has been honored to have shown her work at The Old City Jewish Art Center in Philadelphia; the Perkins Center for the Arts, Collingswood, NJ; The Blank-Rome Arts, Books & Culture Festival in Cherry Hill, NJ; Art Blooms Festival in Cherry Hill; the Tyme Gallery in Havertown, PA; Grounds for Sculpture, Hamilton, NJ; Penn State- Great Valley, Malvern, PA. and most especially the Markeim Arts Center, Haddonfield, NJ
Mosaics has opened a whole new world to Sharon and brought her exciting experiences and many new friends. She is a member of the Society of American Mosaic Artists and a proud board member of the Mosaic Society of Philadelphia.
