Member Artisan Feature: Sherry Dole Art

"Once upon a time there was a village in the land of Southern Mississippi USA. In a cottage surrounded by an enchanted Wild Garden of trees, flowers and many animals and birds there lived a joyful artist."* 
That artist is Sherry Dole, artist/owner of Sherry Dole Art.  A lifelong artist, Sherry turned pro 15 years ago. “I went thru a difficult time and creating art saved my life,” she explains.  

Also an avid gardener, animal lover, and costume and theatre history buff, Sherry draws inspiration from both nature and history.

As an artist, her biggest challenge is time management. “I always underestimate how long a project will take since my paintings are so labor intensive,” she says. The effort is worth it though, when people tell Sherry how her paintings make them smile and feel good.

Her work has been featured in art shows and galleries across the United States. Hundreds of her pieces are at home in private collections in the U.S., England, Scotland, Ireland, France and Costa Rica.  In addition to her paintings, her Etsy shop offers giclee prints and polyresin sculptures.

Other skills she’d like to explore include computer, digital photography, typing. Says Sherry, “This list could go on forever – I’m always learning!”

Louisiana is important to Sherry. “Growing up in south Mississippi meant New Orleans was always the place to celebrate special occasions, dates and vacations,” she elaborates. “Early on, I fell in love with the history, the people and the wonderful festivals of Louisiana.”

Be sure to check out Sherry's Etsy shop where the proceeds from certain items benefit The Gulf Restoration Network.
