Join host Ekaterina Popova and Sharon Wensel on an inspiring episode about returning to art later in life, recommitting to your passion after raising a family, and finding healing and inspiration through nature. 

"This body of work was inspired by runs on the local trails and quiet very early morning walks with my dog. I live in a rural area that supplies a lot of inspiration through nature.  I am hypnotized by the light streaming through the trees and how it is reflected on the leaves in a multitude of shapes and colors."

Sharon Wensel was born in Phoenixville, Pennsylvania and currently resides in Skippack, Pennsylvania. She has two amazing sons. She studied at Hussian School of Art, Pennsylvania Academy of the fine Arts, and Montgomery County Community College. She is a member of the Philadelphia Sketch Club and Art Queens. She has received numerous awards for her pastel, photography, and mixed media work. You can find her work in private and public collections throughout the country.
