Hello! I’m Sharon Wegner-Larsen, the creator behind OMEGAFAUNA. I'm a painter, illustrator, and graphic designer. I've been drawing non-stop since I was just old enough to hold a crayon. I live with my husband and our budgie in a little home in the little city of Sioux Falls, South Dakota, surrounded by field, prairie, and wide open sky.
