About Sharron Parker

Sharron Parker received an undergraduate degree from Duke University and a masterís degree from UNC-Greensboro, studying education, art, and interior design. She continued her study in textiles with classes at Penland School of Crafts and Arrowmont School of Arts and Crafts, where she has returned to teach workshops in felting.

Her work has been exhibited throughout the US, and through the Art in Embassies program, in Turkmenistan and Armenia. She has been a feltmaker for 30 years.

Artist Statement

I use the ancient technique of feltmaking not to capture what I've seen directly, but to create something new. The simplicity of the technique -- combing, layering, and working dyed unspun wool in hot water until the fibers lock -- allows me to work spontaneously, and often experimentally. The shape of a piece might come from a bird's wing, the color from crystals under a microscope, and the texture from the bark of a birch tree. I wish to celebrate nature, not to mirror it.
