Blue Gorilla, Corel Painter on Wacom Tablet by Sherrie Spencer. All Rights Reserved. Please see Sherrie's website at www.sherriespencer.com In this painting, I really wanted to convey the emotion and the beauty of an adult gorilla.
Sherrie Spencer has been producing many different works of art nearly her entire life. Transforming thoughts and images into tangible creations has been a passion for her since the beginning, and it was borne of necessity.
At the age of five, Sherrie suffered a major stroke. Since her speech was severely impaired, Sherrie began to draw in an effort to communicate her thoughts and needs to those around her. Because her mother could not at first identify what she was trying to draw, Sherrie knew she had to sharpen her skills in an effort to perfect her craft.
With intensive therapy and the passage of time, Sherrie regained her mobility in part and her speech entirely. At that point, however, she had already developed an insatiable passion for art.
Through nearly 23 years of working in the professional art field Sherrie has come up with her own unique mixture of digital art and traditional art to make her realistic artworks.
