Sherrie Graybill Fine Art
Born in Colorado I developed a passion for creating all kinds of art as an expression of my inner self. I began using my gift spending much of my time with my mother while she sewed on an old White treadle sewing machine She would give me spools of thread, ribbons, buttons and scraps of material allowing me to create my masterpieces at a very young age. She would make dresses for my sisters which were then handed down to me. Sometimes she would use an old housedress she had worn to create something for us to wear. My earliest memories of winning numerous blue ribbons at the local fairs was as early as the age of five. I have used every imaginable medium available to me from pencil drawings, oil painting, quilting, floral design and my favorite creating beauty from observing nature and all it has to offer with its natural materials. The antlers I use depict the character and strength of Native Americans. It has become a true spiritual experience with each creation I have envisioned. I have won awards in my middle and high school years at art displays in malls, museums a and financial institutions. I received an art scholarship to pursue my love of the arts. The feeling of accomplishment when these unique one of a kind pieces are made is so gratifying. To be able to share this gift of creating something from the earth brings back those special memories shared with my mom. She was an inspiration to me. What I learned from her has been a blessing.
