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!

Spreading the Joy

     The inspiration for today's blog came from a lovely note I received. It was from a collector who had written to let me know he had received the print he had ordered. At the end of his email, he said
"Thanks for spreading the joy." His remark just took my breath away! How lucky am I to have wonderful folks who actually get what I am trying to do? I feel so blessed to be able to create images & sculptures that make people smile. I feel even more blessed when I get to hear about it! His note inspired me so much, I have been working on new ideas in a wild and frenzied fury since I read it! I had to take a little break to distract myself enough to post this blog. As a matter of fact, I am going to paint myself a little sign with "Spreading the Joy" on it to remind me and to keep me focused on my mission.
