Sherri Springer’s relationship with the arts has always been of a highly intuitive nature. When little, she would play the piano by ear, and, later composed numerous songs. During a very difficult time of loss, Springer found some refuge and calm through painting. “Each time my brush touched the canvas, my mind and heart temporarily seemed to rest as l was desperately trying to grasp the reality around me.”

Today, painting is a way for her to channel feelings of joy and pain, treasured memories, regrets, and many other emotions. “I want to connect the viewer with a sense of the fragility of life, as well as the importance and joy of living in the present. Pressing forward, hopefulness, positive and grateful living will help you better navigate through struggles in life.” Springer paints abstract expressionism with color and movement while choosing titles that also express these messages or themes. Alternating delicate shading and thick dynamic markings. When painting, Springer lets herself go completely, feeling her way on the canvas instinctively. Springer’s ebullient yet reflective personality shines through each of her paintings.

Originally from Montgomery, Alabama, Springer now resides in Birmingham, Alabama. She holds a business degree in Human Resource Management from Auburn University at Montgomery. After twenty years in the corporate world, in 2020 she became a full-time artist. Springer’s paintings have been exhibited locally and internationally. Her artwork was featured in House & Garden UK, The World of Interiors UK, and on HGTV’s My Lottery Dream Home.
