About Sharon Watts

I am a visual artist (see my work at Sharon Watts Creative) who has been finding solace and freedom in words since September 11, 2001, when what started as a journal became a part of a communal tapestry of love and respect woven for a FDNY legend—  Miss You, Pat: Collected Memories of NY’s Bravest of the Brave, Captain Patrick J. Brown.

A decade’s worth of essays (with a few poems scattered in) entitled Back To My Senses is available now in soft cover, and on Kindle. Visit my Amazon Author Page here.

Hell’s Kitchen and Couture Dreams, about my art student days in the early 1970s, is shaping up as a time capsule with words, visuals, and maybe even some music. I am work-shopping it now, with intentions of publishing it one way or another in the next  year. The memoir-scrapbook is also my valentine to New York City, when it was bruised, tender, yet tough. Get updates HERE!

More outlets: I write about my life as a fashion artist (with plenty of visuals) as Dirndl Skirt. And my “what’s it all about” musings are posted in Zen I Can (an hour at a time).

Meanwhile, I write and interview on a regular basis for YogaCityNYC. This is a job that allows me to access incredible people who are tops in their fields regarding holistic health in all its forms. I also get to view and write on cultural exhibits around NYC that reflect a myriad of creative and spiritual modalities. A list of articles is to the left of this page.

I’ve also discovered that I like documenting people’s stories. Their ways of expressing themselves regarding personal passions and missions, thoughts and feelings, resonate with me, and I want to help capture those things “for the record.” If you have something you need to share, let me help. Meanwhile, keep checking back here. I have some things to share of my own!

    Sharon, Thank you for your loving honest testament to my sister. She tried so hard, did so much, and enriched so many lives. I am so lonely without her. I want to call her right now and tell her how amazing her friend Sharon is. There is a knife in my chest. Thank you. Liz Hartley

    Sharon I love your new website. I have been tinkering with the idea of having a website of my own where I can put all my fiction and non-fiction writing and my blog. This looks like the kind of place I had in mind.
