IT IS! Click
here for "A touch with a torch"!
Special thank you goes to Lloyd
Sowers of FOX Channel
13-Tampa Bay, for the interview on Tuesday, January 15. Lloyd
and his incredibly talented cameraman, Larry Towe, artistically
created a wonderful piece on my "Industrial Art" metal
sculptures. I was flattered to tears. Though I was very nervous, it was a wonderful experience.
Lloyd was very
effective in orchestrating something masterful out of my timidness.
may seem Like I'm accepting a Grammy...but so be it!
warm thanks to my incredible welding teacher at Erwin
Tech, Tim Farr..and Roland, who's class I crashed occassionally
(when he's not chasing señoritas in Mexico), thank you
from the bottom of my heart. Thanks Mr. Donahue x 2 you've been
my Principal! A real big hug and thanks to Steve Briant, Allyson,
and Donna for showing enthusiasm for my work, giving me confidence,
kindly pushing me in front of a news camera...and also being there
for me at a sad point in my life (loss of my father). Thank you
dad for giving me your artistic talent (i miss you), mom, for
being my rock, my aunt for my inspiration, and my sister RhondaK
for my SPICE (and so much more I don't have enough bandwidth).
Last but not least the loving, wholehearted support and encouragment
of my husband, Jeff.
If the show inspired you in any way to take classes in welding
or art...make sure you tell them that Sherrie sent you!
OLDSMAR 3RD ANNUAL ARTS & CRAFTS SHOW...
A special thank you to all of ones that came out and braved the
poor weather in the name of art! No sleet, nor rain....and what
almost felt like snow was bad enough to keep a hardy few art lovers
I made some incredible new friends those 2 days! Though the bad
weather destroyed most of the shows tents, the resiliant few hung
in there for each other and made it a great day!
thanks to Nettie, of Crafts
and Artisans for being absolutely wonderful!
Love ya, gal!
