Sheryl's journey with art making began around twelve years old when she drew a simple pencil rendering of a popular book character. Upon Sheryl sharing the drawing with her mother, she had proudly displayed it in the corner of her dresser mirror. Sheryl felt that her identity as an artist had begun.
Sheryl loves to capture those small moments that reflect and celebrate human living. The moments that we may overlook or take for granted.
Sheryl feels that painting is the best medium for expressing her observations. It is accessible, challenging, and allows her to communicate the vibrancy of life that she is recording in her artwork.
Sheryl is currently working on larger works and experimenting with making art through weaving techniques and reusing materials.
"The purpose of art is to justify living, to extend living and to remind others they are living."
