I really enjoy working in all mediums but I specialize in charcoal and chalk hand-drawn portraits. - Eyes are realy important to me. I try to capture emotion and character of my subject in there eyes as well as well as the face. It is very exciting that my drawing or painting are a treasured family heirlooms.

I like a wide range of visual art and artists. When I was little I had a few big eyed little girl paintings and "pity puppy" paintings. When I was a young teen I started collecting a few originals and prints. I also liked collecting book marks that had paintings of book covers. I also collected old hard cover books. These artists inspired me.

My Name is Sherry Wray. I live in Southern Saskatchewan with my family.
I am in my 30's or so..... With no formal fine art training whatsoever, and no knowledge of art history and even less of art technique.
I would say I am a self taught artist.
You can find me on facebook under Sherry Wray Artist
Originally the intention of my paintings was just about creating a strong image, purely visual, incorporating my experiences. I like to have different themes depending on my mood. Contemporary, ballsy, flirty, weepy, punk, no-nonsense, Funny, intelligent, unusual, independent, odd ball, and outsiders.
But most of all Lovely girls and sexy guys.
Oh and did I mention I don't always draw people!
I love to draw animals too and places.
For Mediums I enjoy using Acrylics,Indian Ink,colored pencils, charcoal and chalk.
When working with Charcoal and Chalk I enjoy making life like portraits that are lifetime family heirlooms.
In the studio space I do painting, drawing, sculpture, jewellery, ceramic arts, and glass arts.
Thank you for blogging!
