Sherry was born in Cleveland, Ohio. She spent a great deal of time, as a child, with her grandmother, who was the first person to introduce her to paint; she made quilts and encouraged artistic expression. Sherry was an only child and feels she developed her vast imagination from spending large chunks of time alone. The inspirations come from everywhere and no place at all, she believes her Cherokee Indian heritage has a lot to do with her artistic vision. She has experimented with many different mediums and also dabbled in many different areas of the visual arts.
Today artwork is a way of life to her. The work is done in acrylic paint because they achieve the vibrant color she is looking for. She likes to paint an idealized sense of peace and simpler times. The artwork is not intended to be photo-realistic, so much as a wishful utopia. The hope is to give the viewer a feeling of happiness, a cherished memory, or some form of intense emotion. Her newer artwork sometimes tends to have a dark twist to it and much more of an emotional connection. She is most known for her imaginary and real landscapes and streetscapes. She has spends some of her time pursuing abstract art and illustration art. Some of her favorite subjects to paint are imaginary landscapes, little old towns, emotional people, as well as dark artwork. Much of her inspiration came from a vacation to Maine where she feels she found her artistic voice.
Sherry’s work has been collected all over the United States and internationally. Her hope is to continue to reach people so that they can enjoy her vision of the world. Her opinion on her style of painting is this; “I do not label myself with any certain style of work, as my only limitation is where my imagination ends”
