Sheri R. Klein, PhD, MFA is a Midwest (US) based interdisciplinary artist, educator, and author. Her intersecting professional practices include teaching and the production of artistic works and publications. Her multifaceted practice is envisioned as a braided stream that is highly dynamic, multi-channeled, and continuously reformed. A key thread throughout her professional practice is that the creative process and artistic experience is a vital and reflective space for self-discovery, personal growth, and transformation.
She began her formal studies at the School of the Art Institute of Chicago (BFA and MFA Painting and Drawing) where she studied with a wide range of artist-teachers including the Chicago Imagist painters. Her oeuvre of artistic works include small scale paintings, works on paper (collages and found poetry) and scarf designs. She is the recipient of numerous grants, awards, and artist-in-residencies and has widely exhibited her artistic works in galleries and museums.
