The history and tradition of the American West inspires much of Sherry’s work. In addition to her Master status with AWA, Sherry is a Signature Member of the American Plains Artists and OPA. Her work is in the permanent collections of the Tucson Museum of Art, the Desert Caballeros Western Museum, the Phippen Museum, the Great Plains Art Museum, the Arizona Military Museum, and the St. George Art Museum. Her work can be found in private and corporate collections worldwide.
My work is considered mostly traditional in style, and yet is quite varied in subject matter. Still life, landscapes, animals, and figurative work, including portraiture, are all subjects that I enjoy painting and have painted for years. It all comes together in my current concentration on the American West. The quality of light, the vastness and uniqueness of the landscape, the exquisite beauty of the human form, are all contributing factors to this inspiration.

Winning the Purchase Award has such enormous significance for me, it’s every artist’s dream to be in a museum and my work, Lee’s Ferry Landing, will be at the Tucson Desert Art Museum for as long as I live. I’m so thankful to the American Women Artists for that opportunity.”
