drawing has always been a passion and painting
has been a natural extension of herself -
she can't remember not drawing. Sherry started
painting at the age of twelve, and except
for some classes during her early teens and
a few workshops through the years Sherry is
self-taught. During high school and early
marriage she used pastels and did occasional
commission portraits. Later Sherry rediscovered
oils and the obsession began.
During the past ten years Sherry has painted
subjects ranging from Americana and the cowboys
to the American West, and she has recently
started to paint Native Americans; she mainly
uses young children and women these days.
Sherry and her husband travel from their home
in central Texas to New Mexico, Arizona, Colorado
and South Dakota each year to meet the people
she paints and to gather new material.
Sherry's enthusiasm for her painting and subject
matter are one of the first things you notice
when you meet her. Sherry is truly an artist
who enjoys her work.
