About The Artist

So you want to know more about me...

My background :

I’m Sherri, an artist and designer born and raised in  Massachusetts, currently based in Germany’s wine country with all my boys (husband, son, and two male tuxedo cats). 

Creativity has been a part of my life as long as I can remember. The first thing I ever wanted to be was an artist, followed quickly by dreams of becoming a pediatrician, then mom to 8 kids, then a lawyer, then a fashion designer, lawyer again, until I finally went to university to study Hospitality and Tourism Management with a focus on even management and food and beverage. So, obviously I’m well qualified to run my own art business! 

Some fun facts about me as a human:
  • I’m a chronic hobby dropper, meaning I own most craft supplies known to man. Watercolor and surface design are the big ones that have stuck! 
  • I love food and cooking. Making food that people enjoy is one of the best feelings in the entire world. 
  • In a past life (i.e. my twenties), I played roller derby with the Bay State Brawlers in Massachusetts, and the Bembeltown Rollergirls in Frankfurt. My knees decided to revolt in 2015 and I had to retire. 
My art and style:

My style is typically fun, graphic, and colorful. I like to put humorous or unexpected twists on classic pattern design. I find inspiration in everyday things, as well as travel.

In terms of art, my interests lie in pattern making, illustration, and watercolor. Outside of art, my interests lie in cooking, eating, travelling, and hanging out with my little family. I get so much joy and inspiration just by exploring with my hubby and kid.

Someday soon. I hope to write and illustrate children’s books, design wine labels, and travel like a normal human again.
