From Time to Time I like to profile, new to me, Artists whose work I just Love :) And so, here is Sherri Pekks. I bumped into Sherri in the forums on Etsy a few weeks ago and was immediately struck by her amazing Artwork. I Love her quirky sense of humour and lovely insight. Her Artwork is colourful and bold, clever and passionate.
I sent Sherri some questions so we could get to know her a little but first here is Sherri's brief Bio :)
"My name is Sherri Pekks and I am a Mom, Wife, Woman and Friend all wrapped up in one body and mind. I try to find humor and honesty in everyday experiences. Painting is like a form of therapy to help me deal with this crazy world and Life In General".
