Originally from Trinity County in Northern California, Sharon Zeugin makes art, teaches, and facilitates workshops in her Austin, Texas Studio, and throughout the USA, Canada and Italy. In addition to being a faculty member of numerous international calligraphy conferences, Sharon heads the annual two-week Literally Letters Program at Ghost Ranch, New Mexico, and is a faculty member of the Austin Contemporary Art School. Her award winning work appears in publications such as Letter Arts Review, The Calligrapher’s Engagement Calendar, Somerset Studio Magazine, and the Lark Book,”The Art and Craft of Hand Lettering.
Influenced by her training as a therapist, Sharon seeks to cultivate a safe classroom environment in which respect for body, mind and spirit are as important as skill building, where students are encouraged to experience art making as an experimental, intuitive and mindful practice. Whether teaching courses in traditional or contemporary calligraphy, art journaling, drawing, sketching or painting, Sharon’s goal is to help students get over fear of the blank page.
