Kathleen is a studio artist at Buffalo Arts Studio in Buffalo, New York and creates her larger prints at the Experimental Print Imaging Center at the University at Buffalo. She has an MFA in Printing/Printmaking at SUNY Buffalo. Until 2015 she taught drawing and design as an adjunct faculty for both Niagara County Community College and D’Youville College and was also the Gallery Director and Curator of the Dolce Valvo Art Center at Niagara County Community College. Currently, she curates visual art exhibitions at Betty’s Restaurant in Buffalo and maintains her studio practice.
Sherin attributes some of her visual inspiration to the years she worked as an emergency room RN and educator at Children’s Hospital in Buffalo, a personal fascination with human sensory and psychological issues, and an attraction to abstract systems in science in math. In her stylistically recognizable prints, she intertwines and overlays imagery derived from these varied sources to create visually poetic compositions.
Look for her work in a 2018 release of the indie film Malasia, written and directed by Marc Cappuchino and filmed in Buffalo in spring 2017. One of the main characters, Gwen, is an artist and Sherin’s work was chosen to be the work of this character. Her website is ksherin.com.
