Christy Sherman is another fantastic Rhode Island artist and newcomer to our program! Christy is a wildlife artist and polymer clay enthusiast who primarily works in relief sculpture. Christy works with polymer clay for its highly tactile nature in order to create texture and her signature expressionist aesthetic. She enjoys sculpting on a small scale, usually living creatures – whether natural or fantastic – and has been incorporating these sculptures into beads, pendants, kaleidoscope bodies, and wall reliefs. Her work captures the gesture and expression of animals, using her rural surroundings in Richmond, Rhode Island as a source of inspiration.
Christy is a member of the Southern Connecticut Polymer Clay Guild, the Mystic Art Association, the Newport Art Museum, and the Wickford Art Association. Her sculpture work has been featured on back cover magazine ads, national catalogs, and in Bead & Button Magazine. Her writings on polymer technique have been published in Polymer Cafe magazine, PcPolyzine, and Polymer Clay Central. She will be teaching polymer clay workshops on jewelry and relief
sculpture at the Wickford Art Association this summer: check out the website for workshop schedules.
