Sheryl has always consistently pursued art learning with every opportunity from a very young age. This included a wide variety of art classes that commenced from her teen years. While completing a Bachelor of Arts at Carleton University, she met abstract artist Lila Lewis Irving of Mississauga. She inspired Sheryl to try abstract painting with fluid acrylic paint. As her art progressed, she merged her love for acrylic paint on canvas with mixed media techniques, such as collage, oil stick, acrylic marker, ink pencil, and spray paint. Sheryl feels that art should be enjoyed, and it is her goal to get as much of her art as possible out into the world.
She was awarded Third Honorable Mention in the 2021, Art2Life International Juried Art Exhibition. Winners were chosen by juror Juan Kelly owner of Nuart Gallery in Santa Fe from over 4,500 works of art. She has been featured in several solo shows in Ottawa as well as participating in group shows. One of her paintings titled Green Rooftops was featured as the image for an innovative green living housing complex in San Francisco, CA. Sheryl was featured in two artist interviews with CBC Radio program, In Town and Out with Adrian Harwood and Ottawa Morning with Hallie Cotnam. She recently completed two consecutive years of the Creative Visionary Art Mentoring Program which were created and led by artist Nicholas Wilton. The programs offered creative coaching to artists in addition to art education. These courses were incredibly transformative to Sheryl’s artistic journey. Her creative process is now more spontaneous and authentic than ever before. Joy and passion have also found their way into her daily routine as an artist.
