The journey to realizing my greatest desire to become a full time artist has not followed a straight path.  A degree in art history from California State University Los Angeles led to a second degree in nursing. Though nursing became my day job, I never stopped nurturing my inner artist with classes in oil painting, mixed media and interior design.

Creating art and teaching art is what I always wanted to do.  I became a docent at both the Phoenix Heard Museum and the Phoenix Art Museum.  I continued to study oil painting at the Scottsdale Art School and Botanical Illustration at the Phoenix Botanical Garden.

Upon my return to California, I became a docent at the Santa Barbara Museum of Art and given the privilege of time, I am now a full time artist.  I furthered my art and printmaking studies at the SBCC ‘s CLL.  Under the guidance of my mentor, R. Anthony (Tony) Askew, Professor Emeritus of Art at Westmont College, my art career became a reality.  In 2014 I studied “Traditional Etching Techniques” at Crown Point Press in San Francisco and further developed my printmaking techniques with Master Printmaker Michael McCabe in Santa Fe, New Mexico. I participated in workshops with Susan Tibbles, Lennox Dunbar, Professor Emeritus of Aberdeen University in Scotland, and Master Printmaker Ron Pokrasso of Santa Fe, New Mexico.

I have been juried into several shows and have collectors as far reaching as Germany, China, and Switzerland.

Sherry Smith Bell creates innovative prints and mixed media drawings of houses, barns, doors, windows and nature.  Her art works use the tools of the artist: line, tone, color, ink, shape. Her art works are represented in many museum, university and private collections.
I am continually exploring the ephemeral nature of movement, integrating performance concepts into my visual art. The art I create is imbued with a sense of movement - lines, form and color travel through space trailing an invisible wake behind. My work is often not fixed in place, which creates a John Cage quality of possibilities. Chance and change are possible. Work can often be configured in different ways - picked up and moved as though it were a performance that was evolving for a specific site.
