Sherry Masters grew up in small towns throughout the South, from the hills of Tennessee, and as far North as the suburbs of Chicago. The daughter of an oil fields worker, Sherry didn’t have a very ordinary childhood, but it was an education in itself, teaching Sherry how to adjust to new places and things and meeting new people, which she says has been a tremendous help in her adult life.
A self taught artist, Sherry Masters didn’t discover her talent till her “thirty-something’s”. As she came from an artistic and musical family it came as no surprise. Her art has given her the opportunity to go places and meet people that she would never experienced otherwise.
When asked what inspires her most, Masters says it is by the things around her, such as the woods and creeks and the beautiful Appalachian Mountains where she lives. She believes her paintings are a reflection of more peaceful places and times, when people knew their neighbors and didn’t lock their doors.
Sherry has experience with most mediums, but prefers oils, for the rich colors and the way the oils blend. Oil also lends itself to the use of both brush and palette knife. Her favorite subjects are landscapes, and all the places her imagination can take her. Sherry likes to think that when people look at her work they will know that she loves nature and quiet places.
Besides painting, Sherry loves to travel, and has been to Ireland, England, Wales and Europe. She is avid reader and enjoys curling up with a good book. She also loves cooking and entertaining, as well as outdoor hobbies such as gardening.
