To date Sheri’s students have won over 100 awards in competitions throughout Halton Hills and beyond, as well as scholarships from universities, artwork commissions, and other forms of recognition. Besides Sheri’s success as an art educator, she has extensive experience and accomplishments throughout the visual art world, as a member of various arts groups and committees, including the Public Arts Advisory Board of Halton Hills, as well as contributing to public art initiatives as juror on a public art selection committee for the Town of Halton Hills, and serving on the jury of Humber’s college-wide international art competition for many years.
