Sharon Ronning and T. Kurtz
As a collage Artist, my journey is to explore the fusing together of textiles, found and painted, into Art. The goal with each work is to find a narrative of minimalist abstract design creating whimsy with a fabric palette.
After a career as an Electrical Sign Designer in Seattle and with training in illustration and design from Cornish College of Art (Seattle, WA), my lifelong interests in color and form have melded with textiles and Art.
I have participated in many juried shows in Seattle and Spokane. Among those have been Yuletide 2008 and 2010.
My work is represented at Artisan’s Wares in Spokane, WA.
T Kurtz has had a long history in the Art World. For many years she managed the art business for her mother's professional fine art career as she attended shows and exhibitions across the country. T considers this to have been the College of Art Exposure, and coupled with her Art degree from Washington State University as well as her years in gallery sales she knows what makes fine art and how to do it. While she understands and has worked in various media, pastels are her main love for the richness of the pigments and the delicacy of line.
