Featured Artist

November Artist of the Month - Sherri L. Stewart

As a child, I  watched my mother hand paint black and white photographs with oils. She was also a phenomenal painter and was my inspiration into the world of art.
Prior to the realization that my passion was creating things with my hands and imagination, I worked in healthcare administration for over 20 years. As a result, my work reflects my personal transition from a structured corporate environment to an unstructured, free flowing inquisitive journey. It entails a spiritual awakening and a focus on reflection and growth.
My first “project” about 15 years ago was to mosaic my dinning room table. I then began painting everything that didn’t move. I painted glassware for boutiques in Chapel Hill and Durham, NC where I also held several shows. I began taking workshops in all different types of media including drawing, pottery, watercolors, acrylics, glass blowing, glass fusing, stained glass, glass mosaics, encaustics, hand built shrines, and mixed media collages.
I thoroughly enjoy painting abstracts and especially using texture to add an additional layer of intrigue. My most recent passion is painting with the unpredictability of alcohol inks as the finished product is an evolution of the interaction of the ink with the special paper. It enhances a depth and translucency that is both fascinating and exciting.
