Sher Sester - Professional Artist - sher-sester.artistwebsites.com and www.shersartstudio.com
A Professional Artist blending Fine Art training with Graphic Art experience to produce creative design solutions for fine art, commercial product lines and publications. I have a B.A. in Fine Arts and 20+ years experience as a professional artist. My first position was as an advertising/fashion illustrator for a major newspaper and since have designed and illustrated for advertising agencies, International, national and statewide magazines, children's' books, activity books for zoos & museums, hospitals, charities and gift ware manufacturers. My gift ware designs have sold in gift and home dec. shops nationwide including the Smithsonian Gift Shop, Zondervan Family Book Stores, Mardel Christian Gift Stores, Hobby Lobby, and Spiegel Catalogue.
I work in watercolors, oils, pen & ink, pencil and often combine them with my computer designs. I have studied color and trend forecasting as a member of the Color Marketing Group and apply that knowledge to my designs.
I enjoy painting and designing new product lines and art for framed prints. My paintings sell in galleries, online and in art shows. I have maintained a flexible style in my commercial art to meet the needs of a variety of customers so that the customersí are identified by the art work rather than myself. My fine art reflects the excitement I feel when I find a subject just begging for me to capture it on canvas or paper. My attention to detail and mastery of painting techniques and color is an identifying aspect of my art. Further examples of my art work may be viewed on my web site: http://www.shersartstudio.com.
My home is in Edmond, OK where I live with my dog and art. I have a close family which is rich in love and humor. My son lives in Moore and my Mom and my sisterís family live in Houston and visit often. We all enjoy our time together. When I slow down I enjoy long walks with my dog and sketching natures beauties or visiting art museums and sipping a wonderful cup of tea. I hope my art brings a smile to your face or triggers a cherished memory! Art that touches the viewer and brings a smile, or cherished memory is the greatest accomplishment of an artist.
