The Art of Sherry Dole

I am a painter of Fantasy and I'm all about making the world a better place for every one of us on this fragile planet.
I create images of cats and butterflies, dogs and birds, alligators and raccoons as well as possums, turtles, bears, tigers , lions and any other critter you know -maybe even some you haven't yet met!

My original paintings are created in acrylics or watercolors and ink. They are sent to a printing company that photographs or scans them, then reproduces them in Giclee images on heavy archival paper or canvas.Intricate details and strong color saturation are hallmarks of my work and one painting may take several months to complete. All my life, I have been fascinated with Costume and Fashion history.Prior to becoming a professional Visual Artist, I spent years as a designer fashion buyer for large department stores. When I'd had enough of the corporate life I decided to combine my lifelong love of animals with fashion and theater, stir them all together and VOILA! You have The Art of Sherry Dole.
I always donate a percentage of my sales or my art to animal rescue or welfare groups.

Welcome Yall!

Thanks so very much for dropping by today! I really appreciate your spending a little time with me here in my world of Faery Tales and Whimsicality. Please fix yourself a cup of tea or a glass of sweet tea like we love here in the Deep Southern USA and just sit a spell. I have been looking forward to meeting you! If you are one of my precious friends already, I am so pleased to see you!

My NEW Animal Alphabet!




The "Animal Alphabet is finally being posted for sale! Already selling full names in local shops for Christmas Presents. This was a 3 month project and a really intriguing challenge. First to find as many objects and animals with letters, then to make the animals and objects relate to each other. As I got into it I realized that many names had the same letter multiple times, so to make the name more interesting when matted and framed, I created multiple images for several letters. In all, there are fifty four letters in each alphabet. We have had two sizes printed: the small size is 4.5x6" for each letter and will be used for spelling a name, the large size is 7.5x9" and will be used for initials, most likely. I plan to have both sizes available on http://www.sherrydoleart.etsy.com very soon.

  5. Thanks so much! It was quite a project! I am lucky to have had a great friend who really believed in the potential of the initial drawings, so she encouraged me to keep working away at it until it was completed. It was really fun & an exciting challenge!
