Sherri Richards is a fine artist from Toledo, Ohio residing with her family in Atlanta, Georgia. Sherri holds a bachelor’s of fine art degree from Georgia State University.
From as far back as Sherri can remember she has always been an artist. From drawing murals on the living room walls, to doodling between customers while working at a bank she has always looked at life from an artistic point of view.
Being a teenager during the seventies and the hippie era Sherri found color to be a big part of her life. She loved the work of Andy Warhol, and the bold colors in the work of Peter Max.
Where some artists like the more subdued tans and grays Sherri has always liked the use of different colors whether it’s the turquoise blue of the ocean, the sap green in a leaf, or a bright red in the high heels of one of her paintings of women. A painting for Sherri is not complete without a pop of color somewhere in the artwork.
In her figures of women she looks for beauty in the movement, angles, the mood, and the women themselves. Sherri looks for the same in her pet portraits or bird paintings. She uses harmony and balance in the placement of her subjects. When working with people and animals she is in search of a personality that she can elaborate on. Sometimes this can be found in the eyes, the movement of the body, the tilt of the head, or the gesture of a hand.
When people view Sherri’s work they have said that it is calming, peaceful, friendly, and spiritual. It pleases Sherri to hear that these are some of the reactions to her paintings.
