We sit down with Sharon Zeugin, One of the Featured Artists of December 2016

AC: Tell us about your journey as an artist. How did you come to do calligraphy and then the mixed media?
SZ: Calligraphy has been lifelong passion, as is drawing. A desire to communicate the multi/layered complexity of my experience has led to expanding my visual vocabulary to include collage and mixed media. Weaving together text and image is often my goal in the pieces I create.
