Sweet Home Chicago
In 2001 Sharon created a chair and ottoman that was sponsored by the Garfield Park Conservatory. This setting that concentrates bio-diversity has often been the site for her exhibition of varied works and as such has been a preferred setting for expressing her vision of nature in many forms and mediums. The chair was covered with delicate watercolors of plants that were found during the Aqua Rap Rio Pastaza Expedition down the Rio Pastaza in the Peruvian Amazon co-sponsored by the Field Museum and Conservation International . The ottoman featured five new species of plants that were discovered by tropical bontanist Robin Foster on an initial scientific survey to the Cordillera Azul in 2001. This remote pristine area of Peru subsequently became a national park in record time as a result of support from the Filed Museum in Chicago.
