Sharon Chandler Correnty

I am Sharon Chandler Correnty, the visionary artist guiding the narrative of Marigold Studio—a space where art emerges as an alchemy of discarded treasures and the untamed beauty discovered in the natural world. Nestled in Pepperell, MA, my life has unfolded as a rich odyssey of continual learning and artistic exploration.

My creative journey, spanning over four decades, is anchored by a Bachelor of Fine Arts in Art Education from the University of Massachusetts Dartmouth and a Master of Education from Fitchburg State University. These qualifications intertwine hands-on artistry with a profound understanding of pedagogy. Notably, I have dedicated the majority of my career to working as a public school art teacher, passionately sharing my love for art with countless students.

In addition to my role as an educator, I consider myself a textile artist, with a particular love for wool and natural dye. My commitment to repurposing and upcycling traces back to my early years in Harvard, MA, influenced by my family’s tradition of creativity. My mother, Gloria Marie Chandler, a skilled clothing designer, sowed the seeds of my passion, introducing me to the intricacies of the sewing machine and the art of design.

Marigold Studio stands as the culmination of my global travels, roadside discoveries, and a discerning eye for the overlooked. My artistic palette comprises cloth, wool roving, paint, clay, beads, yarn, and canvas. Each piece unfolds as a story, intricately woven from textiles, artifacts, and salvaged treasures. Through my work as a textile artist and slow fashion designer, I aim to highlight the importance of sustainability, upcycling, and minimizing waste in the fashion industry, contributing to a more eco-conscious and responsible approach to art and design.
