Sherri Cassell a California native was born and grew up in Santa Paula, a small town located in the Santa Clara Valley surrounded by lush avocado, orange and lemon orchards. She remembers as a child looking up at the beautiful mountains surrounding her home town and playing underneath the tall eucalyptus trees. This was the beginning of her love for the California landscape.
Sherri freelanced in commercial art for several years before devoting herself to fine art which is her true passion. Sherri is a contemporary impressionistic painter and her focus is the landscape and beautiful skies of California; she paints in her studio and occasionally plein air. The majority of her work is in pastel she loves the rich colors and tactile quality of this medium, she also enjoys working in oils and gouache. Sherri is an award winning artist who has studied with accomplished national and local artists Bert Collins, Glenna Hartmann and Tony Allain as well as studying on her own by going through many miles of paper and canvas.
