Sheri Monica Nelson-Karikomi works from her home studio in Lancaster, CA, where she braids the real and the fantastic into a dreamcraft inspired by the strong emotions of life around her and her drive to explore the curiosities hidden beneath the surface world. She works with an eclectic array of media, preferring pencil (graphite) watercolors, charcoal, china markers, ink, spray-paint, and acrylics. Over the years she has created her own recognized style identified by heavy contrast and flowing lines evocative of the air and water spirits within her. Some of her more memorable works includes such pieces as her feminine graphite rendition of the Cheshire Cat from American Magee’s Alice, the elegant gypsy in flowing scarves and rose, and self portrait of her inner dream child, reminiscent of “Pearl” from Hawthorne’s The Scarlet Letter.
Sheri has worked with community projects, veterans’ benefits, and art academies as both a contributor and art instructor, applying her talents toward her career in art therapy and intervention.
