…the artist inside of Me

 

My name is Sherry Cantrick. I live in the Great Lakes region of North America with my husband of 35 years and our two dogs.sa-girlz  I am a Creative Instigator. I actively seek and explore outside of my comfort zone. It defines who I am.  I have two favorite joy’s: creating something from nothing and looking at what is; seeing what could be.

Thirty years ago I picked up a pad of graph paper and began doodling layout ideas to renovate our first 858SF starter home. It was terribly ugly.  Yet…it somehow talked to me.  There was something about its tangible “space” that caught my attention.  I began reading books about space; the mathematical component.  I wanted to understand basic dimensions.  What is the minimum size of a dining room that has a 42″ wide table, serves 8, and allows guests to comfortably walk around those seated?  What is the minimum size of a bedroom that houses a king size bed and an 18″ wide 4′ long credenza? Once I understood these components; I began to study comfort-zones. What is the furthest distance between two chairs where conversations become uncomfortable?
…fast-forward…
…After countless renovation and design studies I have come to cherish my love affair with “space”.  I have designed it/ renovated it/ built it/ decorated it/ lit it/landscaped it…yet never had I “captured” the emotion of it.

Impressionism: an artistic style originated in France in the 1860’s
that seeks to capture a feeling or experience rather than to achieve
an accurate depiction.

I am now exploring “captured space”…where I capture the feeling and experience of  detailed space in an impressionistic art form: through the lens of my camera.

I welcome you to enjoy the work on my site.  Here I give you the opportunity to experience and feel “captured space”.  Many of my pieces are available for purchase.  If you are interested in owning or gifting one to another, my contact information can be found on this site.
