Sherry is a native Kansan. She has been sculpting for 19 years. She began sculpting after the death of her only child, son Justin 13. She turned to art as a form of therapy. It has truly been a blessing. Art has helped her heart cope with the loss. Sherry has had many wonderful things happen and has made some lasting friends through her art.
Sherry studied with accomplished local artist Nancy Tapp. She has taken figurative sculpture from Lincoln Fox, portrait/bas relief from Eugene Daub, and recently acquired her 80 hour certificate in Forensic Art from OU. She is panning further study of forensic art in the future with plans of working as a forensic artist.
She is a member of the Wichita Sculpture Guild. She has exhibited at Century II, Bank IV, Old Town, El Dorado Art Gallery, Halstead Fine Arts Festival, Stein Eck Gallery, Hutchinson Art Gallery, Ducks Unlimited, Carriage Gallery in Newton, Ks, City Arts in Wichita, Center for the Arts, also in Wichita and the Ivory Trading Post Gallery in Ouray, Colorado. She currently has her bronze eagle on display at the Frank Howell Gallery in Sante Fe, NM.
Sherry loves to sculpt children, dogs, animals, Indians, and portraits of all kinds of people. Art adds so much beauty to the world. Art heals the soul and renews the spirit. All things seem possible, for we are all kindred spirits.
