Inspired. Original. Creative.



Sherri Rowan

Since 1980, Sherri Rowan, a WV native and a Tamarack artist, has been creating nature-inspired Fine Art, using various media in both Realism and Abstract Expressionism. Today she likes to “paint with a torch.”

Her present body of work is Encaustic, an ancient, archival technique. To control viscosity and make paints that are ultra rich in hue, Sherri creates her own paints, using beeswax, tree resin, oil paint, & earth pigments. “Ever since I was a child,” she says, “color has had a very emotional attachment for me. I get lost, only to find myself, in the creative process as I paint. I wish for others to be as moved as I am, especially by the interesting textures and depth afforded by encaustic.” Learn more about her work on Facebook as Art by Sha, and Wax Ecstatic Encaustics, Flickr, Twitter, Pinterest “Art Sparks the Imagination.”
