Phoenix based Artist (Woodcarver, Painter, Basket weaver)

Hello my name is Sharon Elliott and I am an artist living in the Phoenix Arizona area. I have been wood carving for 30 years and I've been teaching classes for the last 20 years on wood carving. I also in the last couple years started Water color painting which now I'm teaching and selling many paintings. I love to create arts and crafts with my hands and enjoy creating from nothing. I have my work in a couple galleries across Arizona. On Udemy I plan on teaching courses on wood carving and watercolor painting, and perhaps if people like my courses ill create a pine needle baskets class, we shall see. You never know what you can do until you try.
