"Martin’s work reflects the 'good stuff' in life that she is thankful for, a gratitude that grew even more generous after every major obstacle she overcame, Miller said.
'After everything she’s been through, I think she recognizes what’s most important in life and, from that, draws inspiration,' Miller said."
"Roots Run Deep is an exhibition of Martin’s traditional watercolors and mixed media works that speak to her return to painting what nurtures her soul: that salt air, that plough mud and the sweet smell of oyster beds that line South Carolina’s beautiful coast. For Martin, this precious place never leaves you, no matter where you go. It always brings you home, where roots run deep."
"They say life imitates art, and for St. James High School teacher Sherry Strickland Martin, that is beautifully true.
Her artwork has been chosen for the 20th annual Blessing of the Inlet offical portrait, and the artwork will be auctioned off this weekend. It’s her love of art and teaching that has made Martin a go-to person in education, in art and as an inspiration."
"Sherry Strickland Martin specializes in Drawing, Painting, Mixed Media and 2-D Design. Sherry received her BA in Studio Art at Limestone College in 1982. As a producing Fine Artist, she has shown her work in galleries and museums throughout the region.
