Deborah Sherman

This series of works reflects my continuing interest in working from life. I often work with the same model for an extended period and develop poses that reflect mood and personality. I use oil,pastel,acrylic and gouache in my figure pieces. I choose the medium that best suits each composition.

Flowers provide the inspiration for poetic experiments with color and composition. I work from live blossoms and my collection of faux flowers. Changes in background and media enable me to express my joyful experience of color in many ways.



Collage allows me to use motifs from my paintings in new and unusual ways. I combine painting,reproductions of my work and found images to create dreamy mixed media images.
