Sheri Emerson has been an artist her entire life, winning her first contest at the grand old age of five. She works in many mediums such as drawing, jewelry, scrapbooking, crocheting, and recently began to work in digital art, but photography remains her first love and passion. She has been published numerous times in both print and digital magazines, and is an international award winner for her digital art. Sheri finds her best inspiration in nature, and likes to say that Mother Nature is the ultimate artist, she would simply like to collaborate. Born and raised in Michigan, she now splits her time between her homes in Tempe, Arizona and Labrador City, Canada, and can be found most days, camera in hand, focusing on a flower or chasing a sunset.
