Sheri Walz, portland Member Since October 2010 Artist Statement I graduated from Western Oregon University with a bachelors of science in art in 1998. The same year I also won 3rd and 10th place in the oregon student art competition. The subject matter I have painted has really been all over the board over the years. Lately I am mega enjoying painting chinese paintings. I have started drinking kungfu and gongfu tea and I have been "japanese gardening" in my backyard much these days. These days chinese paintings "fit" my current preferred decor "mo"
