Sharon Jungclaus Gould

Welcome to Art and Spirit Studio

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 started school.

In 1976 she returned to school and became a RegisteredOccupational Therapist and has practiced for 33 years in a variety of settings over the years.

She has worked with children, 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 this website to view her art.

Sharon has two grown children, a daughter and a son, two grandsons, and a new granddaughter.  She lives near Nashville,IN in beautiful Brown County on a small farm with her husband, four cats, and one special dog named Max.  She loves the woods, the abundance of wildlife that live nearby and visit each day plus the peace of the place.  Her closeness with nature inspires much of her work.

Sharon's  work can be seen on this website, at Hoosier Artist Gallery and Gallery by the Green in Nashville, IN.  She teaches classes, workshops, retreats, and has open studio at the Traditional Arts Building in Nashville, IN.  She is available for travel to your site as requested with enough students.

In Art and Spirit,
Sharon J
