Sherri Andrews is a fast-rising, award-winning artist, a local philanthropist and community leader, and a well-regarded hedge fund manager. Yet it is her success as a mixed media artist that has been most stunning to her. In less than six years, Sherri has sold more than 100 paintings, curated a highly successful solo exhibition and received recognition, including the prestigious Ben Whitmore Purchase Award from the Trenton City Museum at Ellarslie.
As a self-taught artist, Sherri is best known for her bold landscapes, colorful flowers, graceful dancers and abstract images, which she creates using a mix of inks, acrylics and collage. The vivid colors and spontaneity of her paintings convey energy and joy. She is passionately committed to sharing her vision—and her talents—in a way that inspires personal growth in others and helps to support causes that are important to her. She has donated a number of pieces of artwork to support local arts organizations and local charities, including the Arts Council of Princeton, the West Windsor Arts Council and Art-Jam’s Homefront.
As a finance professional with a Harvard MBA, Sherri draws upon her artistic instincts to bring creative problem-solving to her work. While it may seem that these two worlds are far apart, each reward “out of the box” thinking, attention to detail and bold, contrarian approaches. Painting also serves as a meditation and a source of positive, restorative energy for Sherri.
In addition to Sherri being honored by the Ellarslie at Trenton City Museum in May 2018 as Emerging Artist of the Year, her painting called Abstract Poppies was purchased for the museum’s permanent collection. Her work has been displayed at juried venues, including Phillips’ Mill, Trenton City Museum at Ellarslie, D&R Greenway, BSB Gallery, and West Windsor Arts Council. Sherri has participated in juried art fairs and had her work shown at Third Street Gallery’s “Embodiment: Figure in Art” in Philadelphia. She has taught workshops at the Arts Council of Princeton and the New Jersey State Council of the Arts. Sherri was honored to have her first solo show at the Plainsboro Library in August 2019 and is currently represented by Karen Anderer Gallery in Lancaster, Pennsylvania.
Sherri resides in Plainsboro, New Jersey, with her husband and 21-year-old son, who is also an artist. She is the former president of the West Windsor Art Council.
