After University Sherry began a career as an art director and graphic designer working for international advertising agencies. She rose to creative director/art director for high profile clients such as Jaguar Cars, BMW and Sony.
But a strong pull returned Sherry to her fine art training and roots.
Her focus is on the figure, specifically muscles: body builders, weightlifters, and boxers in pastel and graphite. For Sherry drawing is a distinct and generative practice, allowing full imaginative exploration. They stand on their own.

She is Influenced by, David Hockney’s draftmanship, Alice Neel’s color, Cy Twombly’s energy. Sherry sits on the Board of Directors of the Pacific Art Foundation in Orange County, CA.
