Sharon Roode started sketching from the age of 4 and hasn't stopped since. Inspired by the fashion stylings of such well known Movie and Television show designers such as Bob Mackie, she trained in Fashion and Interior Design, Illustration and Marketing in Long Beach, California. Sharon created costumes and clothing for stage productions and fashion shows, as well as for students of competitive Dance, Skating and Synchronized Swimming. She has since found a passion for Surface Pattern Design, combining various mediums into creative pieces of art. Sharon's artwork highlights her love for all things Patriotic, as well as drawing upon her interest in Retro, Western, Victorian, Floral, Camouflage, Nautical and Beach themed designs.
