Sharon lives with her husband on a 225-acre farm in Kentucky, where she raises flowers, herbs and vegetables and her husband raises cattle. Born and raised in Michigan, Sharon is a former art teacher who works with natural, dried and preserved botanicals, creating beautifully designed arrangements, wreaths, swags and other creations. Her love of gardening and the abundance of the harvest helped her to decide to concentrate on designing in this area. Sharon started serious gardening and crafting when a county extension agent asked her to lead a workshop on wreath making with natural materials and cornhusk flowers. Since that time, Sharon has become a one-woman-show. She raises over an acre of gardens, starting with seeds and her own plants, right up to harvesting and drying.
