Sherry was born and raised in Qualicum Beach on Vancouver Island in British Columbia, Canada. She has always painted in a photorealist style, in watercolour, and the subjects of her work are primarily native and cultivated plants and flowers of British Columbia. Recently Sherry has expanded her subjects and has ventured into birds and reptiles, as seen on the website. Sherry’s work extends beyond mere duplication of the subject matter; her paintings are both incredibly accurate representations of her chosen subjects and most particularly celebrations of light, shadow, shape and colour.
Sherry is a published botanical and children’s book illustrator, a Senior Signature Member of the Federation of Canadian Artists, and a member of the Botanical Artists of Canada, American Society of Botanical Artists and Island Illustrators Society. She has participated in numerous individual and group exhibitions throughout British Columbia and North America, and has received awards for her work in juried regional, provincial and international exhibitions.
Sherry works from her home, Serendipity Studio, at Eaglecrest in Qualicum Beach.
