A trained screen printer with Redback Graphics and mosaic artist Sharon has been a supporter of and contributor to the cultural development of Wollongong for many years, recently helping to organise the Love, Art, Music, Politics festival at Mt. Keira. She is also a seasoned social and political campaigner who has been involved in many campaigns such as those to improve the rights of women, the unemployed and refugees. Her daughter’s interest in circus classes many years ago alerted Sharon to the presence of WOW. However in wasn’t until 2015 that she joined a hoop class and became an active member. She has since joined the performance group but hoops are still her first love.
