Atalaya, Oh Atalaya - Sherry Strickland Martin

Sherry Stickland Martin

Watercolor - Landscape | Still Life

Sherry is an award-winning watercolor artist from the Hammock Coast of South Carolina and has exhibited her artwork from Upstate SC to Charleston, and Charlotte, NC. Sherry was awarded a Signature Member in Excellence with the SC Watermedia Society and her watercolors have gained her noted solo exhibitions at the Anderson County Museum, Spartanburg Art Museum, and most recently at the Burroughs & Chapin Art Museum.

 

After a long career that took her across the country, and a hiatus to pursue other avenues in the visual arts, she has come full circle and returned the Lowcountry and to making art that, in her words, “I find inspiring and challenging. It is work that nurtures my soul, of salt air, pluff mud, and the sweet smell of oyster beds that never leaves you but brings you home again where roots run deep.”
