Sharon Ramsay Curtis

Today we talk with Sharon Ramsay Curtis who is the author and illustrator of EDWARD COVERED and GLADIOLA SLEEPS IN, two lovely picture books for young children. She is also a watercolour artist, potter and gardener. Sharon says, “as a human being I seem to be the most at ease when I am making, doing, and/or creating. I love that creating seems to keep my brain sharp and being in the presence of other creative persons seems to inspire me to venture further along my own creative path. I love useful things and my pottery, while decorative, is always functional and ergonomically designed. I am inspired by growing things, change, words and their meanings, colours, lines, and patterns. These are elements, which show up in my work most frequently. I create because creating is the conduit by which I am able to most understand the world and myself.”
