Sherry Houpt

: Visual Artist, painter, art juror, teaching artist

Artist Overview

I am a visual artist specializing in plein air and studio painting. Passionate about exploring the natural world, I bring both realistic and metaphoric imagery into my art. In the plein air paintings, I enjoy quickly capturing the movement of sunlight and shadow on forms. My studio paintings are based on concepts which are symbolic or humorous. I am inspired by travel, art history and a love of nature. I work primarily in oils, acrylic and watercolor producing landscapes, portraits and images of birds.

Special Pandemic Services

I teach private art classes which focus on basic design principles and drawing/painting skills using the Zoom platform. I also have private viewings of my latest paintings in the socially distanced studio space in my home.
