I am Sherry Lynn, living in Grimsby, born in Toronto, 1963.
Art was woven into everyday life: Grama's hand-stitched quilts, Dad's cut-stone fireplaces, Mom's banana flambé…. Creativity has simply been the air that I breathe.
At 10, my poster art got 1st place, and last summer, I won the CREATE Niagara Visual Art Competition. In between, I explored, mainly self-taught, fabric art, slab pottery, papier maché, painting, anything that sparkled. Often these were inspired by practical necessity, other times by simple joy.
I feel privileged, now, to have the luxury of bringing my art into greater focus.
