Born and raised in England, Sherie has lived in rural New Hampshire for the past 15 years. She is a juried member of the New Hampshire Art Association (NHAA) and has received awards from The Nature Conservancy, the Plymouth Center for the Arts, the Photographic Society of America and NHAA. She commenced her artistic journey with nature photography but in recent years has shifted focus to watercolors, both nature scenes and wildlife, exhibiting her work across New England.
My creative process goes hand in hand with the deep affection I feel for the natural world around me. I am drawn to the elegance of the ordinary, the innocence and wisdom of an animal, the light of a scene. My shift from photography to watercolors has been precipitated by my wish to express how I see and feel nature on a deeper level, to work with a purer medium, and to experiment with the experience of color. I am captivated by the soft yet powerful work that can be created with this medium, and the sense of letting go that it instills in me. It is humbling. To help further my creative journey, all my works are original (no prints are made).
Photograph prints are limited edition and there are less than 50 prints of each image made.
All watercolors are originals, not prints.
High quality archival mats are used with all works.
Framed works include solid wood frames, made by local independent framer; glass is UV-resistant for archival purposes and anti-reflective glass for enhanced viewing.
