Sherri Trial has garnered many awards in national and international juried exhibits, combining lettering and the abstract. “I interpret text to create a visual mood, where sometimes the legibility of the words becomes secondary”. She lives and works in Pennsylvania.
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. Materials used are watercolor, acrylic gouache, 23K gold leaf, calf- or goatskin, and paper. Many are executed in a small to miniature scale."
