Sherry Solow

is a contemporary realist painter of landscapes. She lives in Yonkers, NY close to Bronxville. Born in the Bronx and raised in Bronx and Manhattan, she started painting in oils at the age of 12. She went to learn about oils at the Traguba studio in the Bronx with her mother. "My inspiration was Vincent Van Gogh, for his passionate use of color and Rembrandt for his use of dark and light."After being accepted into the High School of Music and Art, she worked and sat in on classes at the National Academy of Fine Art in NYC. Sherry, as a child, created her world by drawing and sketching from a very young age. Her grandmother,who immigrated here from the Ukraine, used to bring, as often as possible, blocks of white paper and #2 pencils for Sherry to fulfill her desires to draw. Coming from a very creative and loving household, Mother was a pianist and artist, father creative chef, she was exposed to the beauty of life. Somewhat a loner, Sherry expressed herself through drawing and painting. Her work reflects nature's beauty by creating peaceful tranquility in a chaotic world through her use of color and perspective.

"I see my work as a reflection of God's Canvas. When I finish a painting I sometimes cannot believe the beauty of it. I feel that God has taken my brushes and has guided them"
