Sharon Miller-Thompson

A lifelong artist Sharon has worked in many media over the decades.

“I am am most inspired to create functional artwork that tells a story through the materials, possibly clay, glass, steel, copper and often found objects.”

Metal working and custom ironwork were added to Sharon’s art “tool box” in 2000, allowing her to really mix a variety of different art media together in a single piece.

Both Minnesota natives, Sharon and her husband, Steve, share their century old  home in St. Paul with their 2 dogs, Marlowe and Dickens. The house also serves as headquarters for Yardly Art studios, with both dogs overseeing most Yardly Art daily operations. 

Sharon received a BA in Fine Art from Macalester College, an MS from Winona State University, and has taken many welding classes at St. Paul College.
