Visual Artist - Watercolour and Acrylic

Sheryl Fremlin CSPWC

The Artist Says:

"I choose to create images that are emotionally appealing and uplifting to the viewer.  I am inspired by the exquisite presence of light and the contrasting dark patterns.  When I am surrounded by beauty I am motivated to try and capture these fleeting moments in my work.  I believe painting is a process of seeing with your eyes, interpreting with your brain, and feeling with your heart."


Artist Biography:

Sheryl and her husband immigrated to Canada in 1980, moving to the Cariboo region which is located in the Interior of British Columbia, from Lake Tahoe, California.  The dream of a 'western cowboy adventure' became the reality of 30+ years of working alongside their extended Fremlin family, who owned and operated the historic Flying U Guest Ranch.  Being blessed with an early retirement, the artist now works full-time from her studio in the community of 100 Mile House. 

Sheryl specializes in the watercolour medium with an emphasis on creating paintings imbued with rich vibrant colour, contrast and depth.  Her paintings are grounded in the principles of solid design and draftsmanship showing an impressive mastery of technique and style.  An introduction to painting in Watercolour in 1985 initiated her interest in the visual arts which has become her lifelong passion and pursuit.  She is a graduate of the North Light Art School and the Sheffield School of Interior Design.  She furthered her education through the Emily Carr Outreach Programs, and by taking art workshops with many gifted instructors.   Since 2001, she has had the distinction of being an elected signature member of the prestigious Canadian Society of Painters in Water Colour (CSPWC) based in Toronto, Canada.

Ms. Fremlin has exhibited her work in galleries either as a solo artist, or in group shows since 1987.  Her paintings have been accepted into numerous international, national and regional juried art shows, and she has won many awards throughout her career.  Over the years, her paintings have been exhibited at the Federation Gallery on Granville Island, the Art Gallery of Peel in Ontario, the Quesnel Art Gallery, the Station House Gallery in Williams Lake, The Parkside Arts Centre and Bridge Creek Gallery in 100 Mile House, and the Pearl Ellis Gallery and Whyte's Gallery in Comox.

Her professional affiliations include signature membership status in CSPWC, Active membership status in the Federation of Canadian Artists, and supporting memberships in the Cariboo Artists' Guild and the Parkside Arts & Culture Centre.  She is a past member of the Comox Valley Arts Council, the Pearl Ellis Gallery and the Brushworks Art Group.  Sheryl is a founding lifetime member of the Cariboo Artists' Guild and served on their Board of Directors since its inception in 1990.  Her paintings are held in many private and corporate collections throughout North America.
