"Echafauder" (aa-sha-foo-dey) is a French verb meaning "to build up."  Such a word is perfect for my mixed media artwork.


My name is Sharon Olvera and I am an "Inspirational Mixed Media" artist. My purpose is also to "build up" or edify fellow believers through what has been given to me as a spiritual gift of craftsmanship.

Long before the term "mixed media" became popular, I was doing a form of mixed-media in my scrapbooking pages for my blog.  I used various techniques and embellishments.  The phrase "mixed media scrapbooking" has been used to describe my work.

Welcome to my world of mixed media art!!
