Sharon of Shataz
When was the last time you were in Ras Al Khaimah? Well, here is the excuse you have been looking for: ARTE is in Ras Al Khaimah (RAK) this week at the Al Hamra Mall from 11:00 am – 8:00pm. An easy drive from Dubai and a stone’s throw from the Al Hamra golf course.
This week’s artist, Sharon lives in RAK in the Yasmin Village, but is originally from Port Elizabeth, South Africa. Sharon has been a member of ARTE for 10 years!
Sharon has always loved working with her hands. In South Africa, Sharon started an arts and crafts business with her daughter Taryn. They combined their names to form Shataz. Sharon and her daughter did a lot of work with pottery, decopodge and Fabric painting. Sharon adored making ceramics, but when she moved to the UAE, she was not able to continue. She really missed doing pottery, but then then a friend introduced her to jewelry making and that lead her to ARTE.
Sharon’s other passion is card making and she makes reasonably priced cards for any occasions. This Friday in RAK is the perfect time to get your Easter cards! Don’t see the card that is right for you? Just ask Sharon to customize one for you.
Sharon is known at ARTE for her bubbly personality and for her ribbon fairies. I like to buy her small ones to tie on gifts and I have her larger fairies all over my home. They always bring a smile to my face.
Recently, Sharon has started making more three dimensional fairies.
Sharon’s husband Rob keeps Sharon company at the fairs and you may be seeing his mosaic work at ARTE in the future. Be sure to stop by Sharon’s table at The Al Hamra Mall this weekend or at Times Square on March 25th and say hello!
