Enquire about Sheryl Roberts

Born in Leeds in 1971, Sheryl studied at Jacob Kramer School of Art, then graduated from Leeds Metropolitan University. Several years of teaching in schools and colleges led her in 2001 to become a full time artist, working from her studio in Hyde Park, Leeds.

Sheryl spends as much time as she can revisiting locations again and again, observing the changing light, colours and moving clouds, striving to build a sense of place and belonging. She paints with brushes and pallet knives from memory and photographs, gradually building up thin layers of alkyds, oils and acrylics, often painting with both her left and right hand.

Sheryl’s work is an emotional response to her experiences in vast and remote locations she loves to visit. Her work has been much acclaimed through exhibition and private commission throughout the Uk and Europe.
