Sherri Colvin has been sculpting in a variety of media and scales since 1989. She received her BFA with a sculpture concentration in 1994, but not until recently did she become intrigued with miniature scale. Trained in academic figurative work, interpreting the human form was always an interest in her artistic endeavors. Sherri has ventured into portraiture and more expressionistic landscape painting. In 2005, her career in architecture inspired the creation of a three- story Georgian dollhouse for her two nieces, Liv and Sarah. With the girls' house nearing completion, and needing occupants, Sherri made her first twelfth scale figure. From that day on, creating little folk from clay became a passion. In 2008, Sherri left the world of architecture behind to create dolls full time. These days, she starts every weekday morning in the doll workroom with several cups of coffee, first answering emails and then getting down to the business of creating twelfth scale figures.
When Sherri isn’t making miniature dolls, she runs, kayaks and loves spending time boating on the ICW or out into the deep blue ocean off the coast of Wrightsville Beach North Carolina.
