Known for her extraordinary artistic talents, Sherman’s colorful works come to life on this recyclable, environmentally friendly (tree-free) synthetic paper known as “yupo.” Sherman considers her life as a major work of art — full of whimsy and lush colors. Her high energy and effervescent personality are evident through everything and everyone she touches. Sherman’s paintings are characterized by a strength of composition, a recognizable line quality, and a layering of color on color and tone on tone. Somewhat of an experimental artist, Sherman’s style is contemporary representationalism.
A well-known and established instructor, Sherman shares her talent, skills and tips by teaching traditional watercolor, batik on rice paper, watercolor on yupo and drawing. She offers individual as well as class instruction throughout the United States. She is currently working on a series of books and videos demonstrating her amazing watercolor skills and techniques.
