Hi, My name is Sharon Sutton. I live with my husband Gary a few miles from Huntington, Indiana.
I have two married daughters who live close by. My oldest daughter Carmin Johnston is married to Mark and they have two children. Shelby 19, is a collage student at IPFW in Fort Wayne, Indiana. Jared 12, is a 6th grader at Riverview Jr. High in Huntington.
Carmin’s oldest Ashley went to live with God when she was 6 years old.
My youngest daughter Rynell Klepper is married to Duane and they have one daughter Kirah 6, who is in kindergarten at Roanoke Elementary in Roanoke, Indiana.
I have been a crafter all my life. From the time I was a little girl, I loved to color, draw and create. After I was married I started Sutton House Gifts as a way to sell my hand crafted items. For many, many years I attended bazaars and craft shows while working full time at an outside job.
In 2009 I decided it was too much trouble to continue attending shows. But I still felt the need to create. Since I had always loved to paint, I decided to turn my sights to decorative painting. I became a One Stroke Certified Instructor for Donna Dewberry. From there I started to include all types of decorative painting.
With my family’s help, I turned my craft room into a painting studio. I now offer painting classes 4 times a week in my home.
