Among the inspirations for the subject matter for Elizabethtown artist Sherry Pearl are her childhood and a children’s story.
But Pearl did not arrive at her style of whimsical art through any particular course of study.
In fact, she got there despite her studies in art.
“I got so hung up on the rules, so one day I said, ‘Forget the rules,’” Pearl said.
Using bright acrylic paints, the artist creates scenes focused primarily on people.
