Sherri lives and works in Pennsylvania. She has garnered many awards in national and international juried exhibits, combining lettering and the abstract. Materials used are watercolor, acrylic gouache, 23K gold leaf, calf- or goatskin, and paper.
“I interpret text to create a visual mood, where sometimes the legibility of the words becomes secondary”.
"Words: a written or printed letter or letters standing for a spoken word.” Beyond the basic idea from words, I seek to interpret visually what words or text represent. Even a single word can be rich with imagery.
"Using skills honed from a 30+ year lettering arts career, I create unique works involving and interpreting words & text for meaning and emotion."
Many of Sherrie's works are executed in a small to miniature scale and carry great detail and intimacy.
