Denise Sharp, the proprietor of Studio d.Sharp, is a visual artist with a fine arts degree in sculpture and printmaking . She is a maker of things. She is also a bit of a magpie - a natural collector with a keen eye, particularly attracted to shiny found objects. With a past stint as an antiques dealer, she and her simpatico husband would haul home more things to feather their nest than to sell. Her house and studio swells with vintage ephemera and quirky collections that serve to inspire - her paper trophies are a playful nod to her collection of tarnished loving cups as her private metropolis of souvenir buildings inspired her landmark candy containers.

Her body of work grew out this reverence for vintage charm and her desire to imbue personal celebrations with intimate and memorable details - a table for twenty set with festive sheet music hats, the gift of a handmade cake topper for a friend's wedding, a charming crown a reminder of her son's first birthday. These touches serve as treasured souvenirs and make for occasions rich in meaning and individuality.

Studio d. Sharp's line of paper luxuries declare the significance of the celebration. With busy hands, Denise strives to capture the imagination and with a keen eye, she will continue to look for inspiration in the unexpected and grace in the most simple of objects.

Her creations have been featured in national publications including Country Living and Martha Stewart Weddings. All objects are handmade by the artist in Portland,Oregon.
