Shari MacLeod – Cape Breton Centre for Craft

Shari MacLeod

Shari has worked in the medium of basketry since 1999. Since then, her body of work has expanded to included woven sculpture and multiple forms of fibre art. Each medium challenges her as an artist to strike a balance between form and functionality. Along with reflecting the simplistic beauty of organic patterns and designs, her pieces flirt with the whimsical. Shari is as much inspired by the craftsmanship, practicality, and humour of her Maritime family and friends, as she is the natural, breathtaking landscapes that pervade Island life.
