Backup Art Studio

Sharon is in the shed most days, puttering among her treasures and creating her herb concoctions—it's an "away" spot that fuels her work. "A playhouse...is what I always wanted when I was a child," she wrote, once the project was completed. "My own little house in which I could hide, dream, draw, and make entire worlds of my own." As she's made apparent, a garden shed can be that, too.

Shown: The shed also accommodates Sharon's artwork, as a sort of backup studio. Here, a small green table holds her watercolor of a Baltimore oriole that appears in her latest work, My First Bird Book and Bird Feeder (Workman, 2012).
