Art a la Sherry

Original Artwork by Sherry Robinson


Sherry Robinson– Artist Statement

I am from Atlanta Georgia and have lived here all of my life.  Since a child I have enjoyed drawing and painting.  I took art instruction in high school and for a brief period was an art major in college while attending Georgia State University. However, instead of art, I chose a career in Computer Technology in which I enjoyed success for more than 30 years. Now that I am retired from the corporate world, I have begun to enjoy my art work once again.  I currently have a studio and work the front office at Little Tree Art Studios in Avondale Estates GA. This is near the area where I grew up and so it’s like I’ve returned to my roots so to speak. Everywhere around me I am surrounded by distant memories of my past. Before Little Tree I worked at Kudzu Art Zone Gallery and Studios as Director, becoming familiar with the behind the scenes workings of a gallery. Since retiring I’ve managed to stay pretty busy!  At this point in my art work I enjoy experimenting with all realms of techniques, mediums, and subject matters.  For me the discovery of something new is as exciting as a beautiful finished work of art.  Many of my art pieces are from photographs I have taken; so, my art work is a memory of an adventure or a representation of a story or person I care about.  I have created a company called Art a la Sherry in which to share my artwork with others.
