About

My paintings are not images of a ‘place’ but about ‘place’, emotional responses to places I visit or know well and impressions of fleeting moments that must be captured before they are lost. There is a thrilling rippling sensuality in the natural textures, shadows and reflections made by seasonal change, the landscape is a mass of vibrant changing colour, I paint in tune with the seasons, seasonal change stimulates my ideas and themes.
Working mostly with acrylics every one of my marks must have a purpose to create visual echoes of my reactions and emotions suggested by close contact with the subject. I use an impasto technique that builds colour and textured marks into contrasting quiet and vigorous passages, creating visual and tactile interest.

Naturally the environment is the source of my inspiration. Reflective study, memory, sketches, photographic images and written notes are all a supportive part of my creative process, which takes place in the studio.
. The landscape and natural environment are the essential inspiration for Sherry’s paintings, it is where she constantly returns look for inspiration, and putting an essence of place into the image of landscape.
