Sherry Sivo, Portrait Artist

sivoSherry Sivo is a portrait artist who works in both acrylic paintings and ceramic sculpture. She loves the uniqueness of acrylic in the portrait genre. Her latest work is portraiture on silk, which “lends a more natural skin/flesh effect”.

Sherry is a protegee in the 2015-2016 WARM mentorship program. During this period, her children left for college, which left her feeling excited & liberated, like she could now “direct all my energies to pursuing my art as a full time artist”. She says the WARM mentorship program changed her artmaking : “I have learned to prioritize my work and stick with a piece, overcoming obstacles to sometimes surprising results.”
