Sheryl enjoys portraying the seasons and capturing the color, the light, and the mood of the scene. She paints on location as well as in her studio. She loves being able to not just paint what she sees, but to paint it the way she would like it to be, moving things around or combining several scenes into one to make the most interesting painting possible. “Though I strive for excellence in all my work, I think I enjoy the process as much as the finished product. I love to experiment and try new ways of conveying what I see. I am constantly working to improve my art. My goal is to be able to say exactly what I want on the first attempt, and to make my paintings sparkle with light and life. I most enjoy painting anything from nature, capturing the beauty of creation and the world around me.”  Sheryl enjoys portraying the seasons and capturing the color, the light, and the mood of the scene.
