Sherry Telle has worked in creative fields for over 25 years. She attended the Alberta College of Art, after which she embarked on a creative career path teaching watercolour and acrylics. Currently she handles all of the illustration work for the graphic design firm tellegrafix.com
She is inspired by light and shadow, the texture and colour of an animal’s fur, the reflections in a puddle and the colours in a patch of snow.
Sherry started her career as a watercolour artist and still occasionally enjoys working in this medium. Recently she discovered a new technique using alcohol based inks on a plastic surface called yupo and is enjoying the bold colours and interesting effects of this medium.
Sherry works primarily in coloured pencil using various techniques. Her works have been purchased by local corporations and private collectors alike, with pieces gracing establishments as far away as Brisbane, Australia. Sherry conducts workshops in Coloured Pencil, Watercolour, and Alcohol Inks. Teaching Visual Art is one of her greatest joys. She is an active member of the Chestermere Fine Art Guild as well as the vice president of the Federation of Canadian Artists Calgary Chapter.
