The Greek Marble Initiative presents: Sherry Tipton

A brief presentation of the American sculptor Sherry Tipton who honours us with her presence, her art and her friendship. Primarily a classical pianist and bassoonist for most of her life, Sherry Tipton has also enjoyed a successful career in pastel portraiture and figure drawing. Foremost in her work is the expression of universal feelings and emotions to which we can all relate and which are most beautifully expressed in the figure.  Sherry Tipton began carving stone in 2004 at Ghost Ranch in northern New Mexico and soon began restructuring her life to embrace stone sculpture full time. Since then, stone carving has become her main focus.  In 2009, Sherry began exhibiting her stone sculpture in shows and galleries in Colorado, New Mexico, and New York City. She also received her first commission at this time.
