I've been involved in arts & crafts since a child, but became devoted to decorative painting when I started taking classes in 1979. For years I absorbed everything I could through classes, conventions, books, patterns, and became involved with our local SDP chapter in Cincinnati. I passed my certification in 1989. My books and patterns are published as Sweet Patoodies. In 1993, my cousin Gayle Laible and I decided to publish my first book and that grew into Sharon & Gayle Publications. Through 2004, we published for many designers until we made the decision to stop due to the decline in popularity of decorative painting. Gayle has since retired to pursue her own design work in watercolor. I continued on with my online shop, http://www.DecorativePaintingStore.com, selling the books we published, and expanding it to include a full range of decorative arts books, stencils, and supplies, Early on I recognized the potential of e-Patterns and immediately made my own designs available in this format. I've been adding e-Patterns by other designers and look forward to continuing to expand this side of my business. I'm so excited to give designers without much internet experience a venue to sell their designs online. I urge any designers who would like for me to sell their e-Pattterns to contact me for more information.
