About Sunroot Studio/ Artist Sherri Cromwell
Welcome to Sunroot Studio's on line store, handmade in Rochester NY.
My work is inspired by nature, it is a celebration of nature's organic forms!
A little about myself and my creative journey;
I am a lifelong artist from Rochester NY. My earliest work going back to my teenage years was whimsical, imaginative and symbolic; the expression of my spiritual journey. I sell fine art prints of this retrospective early work and impressionistic Adirondack watercolors which were done about 10 years ago.
My most recent work is a new line of watercolors called, "Communing With Nature". The wonder and joy of that experience of oneness and healing which nature provides, is expressed through vivid washes of color.
Another more recent work is linocut block prints, inspired by my etched metal jewelry pieces. They are offered in limited editions. Brilliant watercolors are applied to each print in a variety of colors for a series of signed and numbered varied editions (VE).
I have been making jewelry for about 20 plus years, and recently incorporated my art into it. I have always loved illustration and designing jewelry; my passion especially for gemstones. My newest art form is this wonderful integration of my art /illustration and jewelry with my line of "Original Art Metal & Gemstone Jewelry". Each piece is unique, one of a kind, hand drawn, and etched on a variety of metals and signed on the back with my trademark, Sunroot. I then combine them with unique gemstones, a variety of glass and leather or vegan suede cord. I especially love Ancient Roman Glass. It is from old dish ware and vessels found in Afghanistan which date back 1500 to 2000 years! I have a series of winged insects, folk animals, botanicals and landscapes.
I have a new line of hand cutout designs on metal which offer a new dimension to my work.
Included with each necklace is a card with the identification and properties of the stones used.
I love interacting with my customers, so please feel free to message me.
You may shop in person at my studio, hours by appointment.
I am happy to accommodate any requests for either special order custom work or adjustments. I can substitute vegan suede cord for the leather upon request.
Please contact me if you would like an item that is out of stock - I may be able to make another providing I have the same stones. Etched pieces will vary slightly as they are all hand drawn.
I want you to be happy with your purchase!
Thanks for visiting my shop!
