SHERRY SCHARSCHMIDT / SEQUIM, WA

My work features slightly demented cats and dogs, vintage sign letters and bits of other stuff in happy combinations. Some are cautionary tales, some are functional (i.e. they have hooks for your keys or leash), some are simply joyful.

I studied fine art at U.C. Berkeley but graduated from Art Center College of Design. I spent the next 35 years as an art director and eventually creative director at advertising agencies from NY to Tokyo to Chicago. Working alongside talented and hilarious people left me with a love of design, typography and problem solving. And the ability to chat with pretty much anyone.

Besides painting I also illustrate children books with my very first copywriter partner - the famous Dean Hacohen.

“Tuck Me In” which has been translated in to 7 languages and the follow up - “Who’s Hungry?”. Our third book will be out in 2020.
