Sharon B. Emerson

textile artist

Sharon is a retired evolutionary biologist. She spent her career doing research in the rain forests of tropical America and Southeast Asia.  “My fascination with patterns in nature has carried over to my art.  I have been interested in color and textiles since childhood when I grew up watching my mother and grandmother sew”.  As a fourth generation quilter, Sharon still retain a few traditional touches to her increasingly contemporary work.
