“I love to paint – especially from life – and I’m very thankful for the opportunity to have studied under Paul Ingbretson, who helped me better develop my ‘seeing’ from nature with such wonderful, directed guidance in his studio.” – Sherrill

Sherrill began her initial formal training in figure and line drawing from John Jagel at the University of New Hampshire, from where she holds a Bachelor of Arts Degree. She also completed several courses in drawing and painting at the Rhode Island School of Design.
She later studied at the Paul Ingbretson Studio for Drawing and Painting in the Boston School Tradition for five years; drawing and painting from life. During the summer of those five years, she traveled to Cape Ann to study plein-air painting with artist/teacher David Curtis – who is also of the Boston School Tradition.
Sherrill’s paintings hang in private collections in the United States and Europe, and her murals commissioned by Legal Sea Foods currently hang in the restaurant’s Copley Place location for all patrons to enjoy. She is listed in Who’s Who of American Women.
