Q: What materials do you use for your artwork?

A: All of my materials are artist grade, sourced with care to ensure the highest quality. I prioritize supporting local art stores for my supplies. For acrylic paint, I love working with TRI ART Paints, Golden, and Holbien brands. My canvases are all gallery depth, stapled on the back and ready to hang with D-rings and wire installed. No framing is needed for my canvas art.

A: Collector of Farm Fresh Tulips, Kim F. "

I love having "Farm Fresh" Tulips on my living room wall because of its brights colours. on greyer days, its lovely to look across to it and imagine a field of tulipsagainst a bright sky.

Collector of Soundtrack of my life (30"x40") Dianne W. Ottawa Canada.

"This stunning piece was posted on her IG and I immediately feel in love with it and within 24hrs it was here! Thank you social media.

When I met with Sheryl, she told me this painting was part of a series where the underlying message was to cultivate happiness in the here and now. Being happy with what we have as opposed to telling ourselves “I’ll be happy when…(insert your thing)

Bam! That really hit me. I try to appreciate everything I have and I’m very choosy before I buy anything new but I know I still fall prey to thinking I’ll be happy when…   

So now, I have this cheerful contemporary painting to remind me, in the most beautiful way, to be happy with what I’ve got, right here and right now.

Collector of Melding into Purple (30"x40"), and Open Me (10"x10" ) Tamara V. Vancouver Canada.

"Sheryl, we Love Love Love both paintings. The entire evening has revolved around hanging the paintings. I greatly appreciate how the obvious contrast of the yellow brings out the diversity and beauty in each shade of purple. That yellow teases out the best that every shade of purple has to offer. "


Q: Can you tell me more about your canvas preparation process?

A: Certainly! Some of my canvases have been stretched with new cotton and painted with gesso by me, resulting in a more rustic look at the back. I take pride in refurbishing canvas that I feel needs a complete do-over. Starting over is a feeling of complete rejuvenation for me. I won't overwork a canvas until it has too many layers; I would rather start over with fresh cotton canvas.

Here is an example of the back of a painting with d-rings and wire / title /year and signature is on the back. Signature is on the front as well.
