Sharon Lee, Instructor
Sharon Lee will demonstrate and teach the techniques of block carving, block printing and textile design. Each student will be given the tools to draw, carve and print an image of their creation onto paper, resulting in a textile pattern. Once the design has been finalized, students will print it onto linen tea towels. The final result will be beautiful hand blocked accessories for the home and frameable works on paper. All levels are welcome. No prior experience is required.
Lee is a formally trained fine artist and owner of Krane Home, a line of hand printed wallpaper, fabric, and accessories created from her original artwork. Her studio is based in Los Angeles, CA where she was raised. Sharon is a third-generation artist who aspires to continue the legacy of her grandfather and mother by taking traditional Korean art forms and bringing them into the present day. She attended UCLA Art School where she first studied conceptual painting and photography and then went on to earn her Masters of Interior Architecture. She then became an interior designer at Michael S. Smith, where she discovered that Korean inspired decorative arts were underrepresented in the interior design world. Lee set out to combine all her training. She studied traditional Korean folk-art techniques, combining them with her unique multi-media process, using block carving, printing, traditional as well as modern brush techniques, gold leaf, and lacquer, to create a singular and modern homage to her Korean heritage. Lee’s career includes solo exhibitions and group shows, most notably exhibitions at the Korean Education Center, the Korean Cultural Center, and the Four Seasons Resort Hawaii. Lee’s artwork and company, Krane Home, have been featured in House Beautiful, Traditional Home, and Luxe Magazine, among others.
