Sherry has been painting off and on most of her adult life. Basically self-taught, she has taken classes and workshops through the years, but painting is her comfort zone. Now as a grandmother, she enjoys sharing art with her grandchildren. When she lived in Gothenburg, a good friend, Sylvia Reidler, taught her to paint watercolor with acrylics in fine layers. She continued with acrylic paint because with three little boys, it needed to dry quickly! Lately she has been painting with palate knife and lots of paint, then crackling the paint and finishing with a gel topcoat. This is a fun process and it is fascinating to watch the painting evolve with color and texture.

From the Artist:

Art brings great joy to this artist’s world, but as with all good things, one tends to do the urgent before the important!! Painting is an outward expression of her feelings and when she takes the time, it helps her relax and focus.

Sometimes a painting starts in the corners of her mind and keeps popping up until she just has to put it on canvas. She has done commissioned paintings, which are someone else’s vision and takes a few more steps to make it what that person sees in their mind. She loves to do diptychs and triptychs, and though they can be difficult to hang, sometimes paintings are more interesting when stretched over two or three canvases.

“Earth without art is just eh”. Artist saw this on a t-shirt and made a painting of it and it hangs on her art room wall. That statement is true on every level – whether performance or fine art – it all enhances the world in which we live, and helps us to see and feel beyond all the daily ruckus of life.
