My name is Sheri Harris. I’m a retired Federal government employee from Virginia who moved to the Sonoran Desert of Arizona after falling completely in love with it. I spent 28 years working at some of the highest levels of government writing speeches, compiling reports, and managing web-based projects. Stress and politics took their toll, but now, I live in a place that calls to my spirit and soothes my soul. Now I feel the urge to create--whether through gardening, gourmet cooking, or art. My art centers around carving and embellishing dried gourds though I continue to enjoy mixed media painting. All of my work focuses on some aspect of nature. I share a special kinship with the natural world, and I try to infuse my creations with the positive energy nature gives me. I take great pleasure in knowing my art has brought joy to someone else. I also use my art as a way to help others by donating proceeds from the sale of some pieces to animal charities and wildlife rehabilitation centers.
My work can be found in my online Etsy store at www.etsy.com/shop/happyhummerart . I also host a Facebook page that not only features my work, but the work of other nature artists, as well as photos, videos, stories, and factoids about wildlife, the natural world, Earth science, and the Sonoran Desert: www.facebook.com/happyhummerart .
