Welcome to My Journey

"Art is not what you see,
but what you make others see."

Edgar Degas

Hi! I'm Sheryl. . . Welcome!

“Art washes away from the soul the dust of everyday life.” 

Pablo Picasso

I am a recovering tax accountant, who after nearly 30 years of practice decided to pursue my passion for art.


I have always enjoyed art, especially watercolor.  I love the fluid lightness of this medium and the challenge in bringing things to life.


Having grown up in the Rocky Mountains of Colorado, I am an avid outdoors enthusiast and enjoy studying the finer details in all things nature. My subjects include: 


  • creatures of flight (birds, butterflies and an occasional insect),

  • botanicals,

  • interesting subjects,

  • and more recently life drawing and portraiture. 


If it is interesting, colorful, piques my interest or inspires me, I will paint or draw it.  It is through my work, that I hope others will look up and see the beauty that surrounds us every day!


Please enjoy browsing my website and feel free to contact me with any inquiries or questions about my artwork.
