My name is Sherre Hulbert, and I am an artist/author/photographer/gardener/crafter and more. A recent transplant to Colorado after a lifetime of living in California, for the most part in Sonoma County. Unfortunately, in October of 2017, the Tubbs wildfire destroyed our home and all of our physical belongings accumulated through 41 years of marriage and also all inherited items from previous generations. As a collector of vintage books, art supplies and my own created art, vintage lace, and many other things, it has been hard adjusting to having lost them all.
Being a Christian, I continue to see God’s hand in the beauties that surround me and hope to reflect that in my work.
As I get older, I like seeing how my different art paths often intersect and diverge. My online presence began in Yahoo art groups where I bravely (for me!) began posting and participating. I ran the Arttechniques Yahoo Mixed Media group for about 10 years (this group was begun by Belinda Spiwak). I am currently in the AWAKE Photo-Artistry course where my work has been published in several of the AWAKE magazines. Having an affinity for textured vintage pieces, I naturally became interested in Kim Klassen’s photography classes where I have been able to incorporate more of my own photos with texture. I also enjoy finding old photos in antique stores and giving them new life with Photoshop.
I also enjoy “hands on” art. I have won awards at our local Harvest Fair and also had my work shown at one of the local wineries. For fun and to continue to stretch I have found many enjoyable online art classes such as Lifebook; Kate Thompson; Let’s Face It; Paint Your Heart and Soul, and many others. I most love to paint portraits. I had a great-aunt who did delicate watercolors of women in a Gibson Girl style. I love how the circle of life continues through the generations!
In 2016 I began creating digital pieces that I call “Daily Graces.” Each piece highlights a quote; from Scripture, poetry, music or books. So many places to find inspiring words. After the fire it took me a while to get my digital content back to create more of these pieces but thanks to Gracie Tracie at E-scape and Scrap, Linda Sattgast at Scrapper’s Guide, Cottage Arts, Hollie Haradon at Mischief Circus, and Design Cuts, I have been able to once again have lots of content from which to create Daily Graces once again.
In 2019 I began the journey of becoming a certified teacher of the Intentional Creativity method in the Color of Woman intensive course. This has been a path of self-discovery and healing which I hope to be able to use to encourage others.
Join me as I continue on this lifelong passion- exploring my visual voice, and I hope it inspires you to go outside and enjoy the beauties of where you live, and to find beauty no matter where you end up.
