Sharon Jungclaus Gould has been an
artist since she decided the walls of her mother's living room would be ample
space for drawing on with her new box of crayons. Even though Mom didn't like
that much, she didn't discourage the drawing and love of art in her daughter.
She just gave her other interesting things to draw and paint on. Sharon
eventually graduated from John Herron School of Art in Indianapolis, IN with an
interest in fashion and commercial art which she worked at for a couple years.
After marriage and two children she was a stay at home Mom until the kids
In 1976 she returned to school and
became a RegisteredOccupational
Therapist and has practiced for 33 years in a variety of settings over

adults, elderly adults, and in acute mental health in a hospital setting.
Whenever appropriate she has used art, crafts, and creative modalities with her
patients. But her love of art has always been present. She now works part time
as a therapist doing Home Care, and devotes the rest of her time to her art, the
co-op gallery she is part of, and her teaching with an emphasis on
SoulCollage®. Sharon has a fascination with gourds and gourd art, and mixed media painting. Please visit the other pages of
