Let’s give a big Sister-Friends welcome to artist Sherri Clark of Art by Sherri Clark!
I have known Sherri for a couple of years, and I LOVE her palette knife work. I even have one of her pieces on my desk!
In her own words:
I have kept my fingers busy for years! First with crocheting; counted cross stitch, quilting…….creative projects that can take a lot of hours to complete! Then about 10 years ago I began practicing to paint with Donna Dewberry’s One Stroke brush painting method – but I felt like every paint stroke had to be “perfect”. This was very challenging and discouraging ….and even though I spent hours and hours practicing to be “perfect”, I never felt like my artwork measured up to the professionals.
I would become so discouraged that I would go months without painting. About 7 years ago I began playing with mixed media – loving the looser creative style – but my creative barrier was finally knocked down when I discovered palette knife painting 2 years ago and finally felt like I had found my artistic niche!
My style of art flows between being messy, shabby, vintage, nostalgic and romantic. I am really drawn to painting flowers….especially roses.
I love sharing creativity with others – helping those new to art and those budding artists dare to be different; to color outside of the lines; helping them play with paint; all while learning to recognize the healing powers that painting can bring to them too.
Let’s Dare to be Different together
