Evans was born in the picturesque part of Washington State known as the
"Big Bend" region.
She still lives there where her ancestors settled,
working to bring to the world her unique interpretations of what she knows
best. One can be assured that Sherryl Evans actually saw the horse or mule
depicted in her detailed watercolor paintings. She most likely heard the
jingle of the harness and the snap of leather coming together when these
powerful animals began to lift their heavy loads.
Sherryl is no stranger to the art world and since joining the Women Artists
of the American West (WAOAW) her work has been exhibited from Bozeman,
Montana to Scottsdale, Arizona, with other stops in Fresno, Sacramento,
Denver, Las Vegas and Cody, Wyoming. The two watercolor paintings featured
here are just a few from a collection that spans nearly 25 years. Sherryl
maintains a studio in her home outside of Ralston, WA. ( 10 miles south of
Ritzville) and continues to market this very special work that captures the
character of some of the most oft forgotten members of the team that broke
ground for the American farmer in years past.
