 Artist Statement

"My goal in a painting, whether working outdoors or in the studio, is to give you a spontaneous impression of the extraordinary beauty that I have found in ordinary places near and far. For me my paintings are about capturing moments in my life as it unfolds around me."

Sherrie  Russ Levine


Sherrie Russ Levine was born in Georgetown, South Carolina and attended Ringling School of Art & Design in Sarasota, Florida where she received her degree in graphic design and illustration. After graduating she worked in advertising agencies and corporate art departments in Atlanta, Georgia for 10 years before making Nashville, Tennessee her home. Since 1995 she has focused her energy on paintings in oil and has shown in galleries and juried shows throughout the United States. 

Levine is an artist noted for her loose impressionist paintings filled with evocative light and color. Her works capture the mood or atmosphere of any subject with expressive brushwork and just enough details to invite you to take a closer look. She often travels to find new inspiration and paints en plein air when on location, or always from life in the studio.  

Levine’s paintings are gaining national recognition in private collections and painting competitions. Her painting “Capitalizing on Sunshine” has become a part of the Tennessee State Museum’s Permanent Collection. She has continued her studies of painting under the tutelage of renowned artists: Barbara Flowers, CW Mundy, Darrell Hill, Kim English, Lori Putnam and Scott Christensen whom are among the most influential in her work.
