Sheri R. Klein, PhD, MFA is a upper Midwest (US) based interdisciplinary artist, educator, and author. Her practice includes mixed media artistic works and essays. She envisions her practice as a braided stream that is 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. She is the recipient of numerous grants, awards, and artist-in-residencies and has widely exhibited her artistic works in galleries and museums.
