It all began when she was a child...

So the question is: What brought her to paint with those colors that make her Artwork so fascinating? 

She explains: "It all started when I was in elementary school art class. The crayons we used for our drawings all thrown into an old coffee tin and we had to dig for the color we wanted to use.   The outside paper on the crayons were all marked up by the other crayons and so you couldn't easily find the color you wanted.   As I would peel back the paper to find the color I wanted to use, I would get a kind of magical feeling upon finding the metallic colors and I was filled with joy.  That feeling is still with me today as I incorporate gold, silver, and copper leaf into my paintings". This instinctive impulse drove her to figure out how to implement those colors in her creation. Today she is the featured Artist of the Aspen Art Gallery, collected world wide!

Trying to compile them...

"Like every artist, I have to try and try again until things work...". Sherri has been trying to mix those colors in single pieces for a while, and it looks like she finally figured how to make them fit together: "People love the triptych so much! I've made 3 so far and they've been acquired very quickly...".
