A self-taught printmaker and compulsive wanderer of landscapes, Sherrie York has recently relocated to Maine from her native Colorado. A long-ago college field trip to draw backyard chickens was the unexpected genesis of a career that encompasses environmental education, natural history illustration, birding, and printmaking. Through the medium of linocut Sherrie finds her way to place, inspired by personal experiences and discoveries as she explores the natural world from mountains to the sea.
Observation is the core of Sherrie’s work, whether she is making a watercolor sketch of tidbits collected on a neighborhood hike or carving a complex linocut block of pinecones and leaf litter.
Sherrie’s linocuts have been presented in national and international exhibitions, including the Woodson Art Museum’s prestigious Birds in Art, and the Society of Animal Artists’ Art & the Animal, and are represented in corporate and museum collections.
