Ready to Hang
The reason I chose the title for this piece ( is because I love a young lady with a modern, yet rugged fashion sense.)
I also love an independent person that likes to reflect on life. She's young and ready to get on with life, but she had to think about it for a moment.
I created this piece because I've raised two young, beautiful, and independent young ladies who have gotten on with their lives, but are wise enough to make good choices. My inspiration are my girls.
Curator's Note: I love that Sherri drew inspiration from her daughters. Her subject's stature and lack of company aptly represent the "independent woman."
I have been drawing since I was five. Once the grownups realized that I was an artist they sent me to the museum for art classes. After I grew up I dabbled in a few different occupations, but eventually came back to my first love and earned a bachelor's of fine art degree in drawing, painting, and printmaking. My work is impressionistic, and romantic. I love doing paintings of horses (especially carousel) and women. Lately, I make my bread and butter doing animal portraits as people are truly (myself included) in love with their pets. I'm excited to have a studio this year in one of our art districts. I hope you'll enjoy browsing my sight and feel free to visit as often as you'd like.
