About Sheri

Sheri DeBow creates emotive and intricate dolls and sculptures from clay and various mixed media materials. Never using molds or taking shortcuts, each piece is a unique result of meticulous creation. As a student, she worked and studied under sculptor Franco Vianello, Phil Cornelius, Michael Maday, Professor Sakaguchi, Richard Carter and Sensei Kusakabe. She now works as a full-time artist and mom to five children in California’s Napa Valley. Sheri DeBow’s work has been featured twice on the cover of “Art Doll Quarterly” and her dolls have received accolades and honors across the globe.

Sheri explains the work by saying, “Ever since I was little I’ve always had my hands on some form of art. I relish in creating something fun or amazing where others would think of as nothing there.Whether it’s a blank canvas or scraps of wood, wire, fabric or clay, I see possibilities in everything around me. After years of painting and sculpting for myself I decided to stop playing it safe and force myself to be vulnerable & share my God given ability. I hope you feel something genuine when you view my work.Whether it is joy, laughter, tears, spirituality, anger, struggle, sex, frustration, peace or whimsy, I hope it evokes something true for you.”

"Very colorful and thought provoking!"



"Beautiful, adorable innocent and wicked all at the same time. Love it."

"Loved your Cinderella, at Arch Enemy Arts. Forgive me, but I photographed her and couldn't help repurposing her as the Virgin of Guadalupe. I'd be glad to send you a scan, if you provide your email address."
