SHA Scholz, has developed her sculpturing talent for the last 18 years while residing in Utah and working with the organic gemstone material from the American West. Originally born in Texas, raised in several East Coast states, and her world travels brought many perspectives into her creative mind. She has worked in multiple sculpture mediums , however her favorite is the gemstone material she has selected personally. Her father introduced her to her favorite artists, Picasso and Rodin, during trips to the museum in NYC & Philadelphia. She has been taught techniques by other Utah Artists, including Penney, Smith, Varner, & Scott. She has displayed in Loveland, CO, Sedona, AZ, Springville, UT, and has gained the respect of collectors from St. Petersberg, Russia, Europe, and all over the world.
Most of the stones SHA Scholz uses have been recognized as rare gemstone lapidary and semi precious jewelry grade materials. She herself has such a passion for the natural signature of each gem. She is also a professional Graduate Gemologist, GIA, and direct stone supplier. The "Picasso" Marble is especially unique, because of the abstract "paintings" by Mother Earth within the Stone.

She also works with Turquoise, Variscite, Zebra Marble, and other truly American Gemstones. She also loves other mediums, such as bronze and metal, and is always experimenting.
SHA Scholz has individually selected the raw organic stone herself, directly from the Earth. She describes the process as the "Stone being born " from their creator Mother Earth and Father Sky. She never works with a square block of stone. She has to witness the individuality of the piece and the natural distinct patterns in the stone before she even begins working on a piece. The mountains have to inspire her soul.
SHA Scholz is a woman and a sculptor like no other, sometimes called a renaissance woman, she is a Renewable Energy Leader, Park City Realtor, Gemologist, World Traveler, Business Woman, and Dancer. All of her experiences inspire her works.
