Artist Statement

A lifelong love for the American West inspires me to paint. My subject matter may vary but for the most part I seek interesting light qualities and compositions which come from a direct observation of nature and a reverence for its truth and beauty. Figures, animals, and the landscape all play a part in what I choose to paint. The historical American West is also important in my work.

Working in traditional style, Stuart paints with a richness of color that illuminates the intensity of sunlight upon her varied subject matter. Her work is both traditional and representational in style and she paints figurative as well as landscape and still life; but the majority of her work is western and equine subjects. The history and tradition of the American West inspires much of her work.

Sherry is constantly refining and developing her unique style. She hopes to continuously grow and broaden her use of light, values, and color, and push her work to the next level.

Sherry would like the viewer to share her excitement of subject matter and style and remember her representation of the American West.
