Artist Biography

Sheryl’s work includes painting, mosaic, collage and printmaking. At LSU she earned a BFA in painting and drawing under the tutelage of Harvey Harris and Paul Dufour, both students of Josef Albers. They expanded her knowledge, understanding and use of color. She also studied with abstract expressionist Milton Resnick at the Blossom Kent Summer Art Program and Washington Color School artist Leon Berkowicz at the Corcoran School of Art.

While living in Paris for a year she rekindled her connection to Pierre Bonnard whom she considers her greatest influence. She has also studied with several artists at the bi-annual Mississippi Art Colony and Laurel True at True Mosaic Studio in New Orleans.

Sheryl serves as art instructor, picture framer, and lighting technician at the Academy Art Museum in Easton, Maryland. She loves introducing beginning students to painting, printmaking, collage and mosaic.
