MEET SHERRI AMOURE | MULTIDISCIPLINARY ARTIST
We had the good fortune of connecting with Sherri Amoure and we’ve shared our conversation below.
Hi Sherri, what do you want people to remember about you?
I want to leave this earth and be remembered by my resilience and perseverance. Time and time again in my life there have been people and things I’ve encountered that could’ve cost me my life. Things that would’ve broken any other individual in this world, but through it all, though there were so many times where I wanted to and could have given up, somehow I was still able to stand ten toes down.

Alright, so thank you so much for sharing your story and insight with our readers. To kick things off, can you tell us a bit about how you got started?

MEET SHERRI AMOURE
We caught up with the brilliant and insightful Sherri Amoure a few weeks ago and have shared our conversation below.
Sherri , appreciate you joining us today. Can you tell us about a time that your work has been misunderstood? Why do you think it happened and did any interesting insights emerge from the experience?
As a creative, the average person misunderstands me on a daily. Many people seem to have this common misconception in thinking that creating art is merely self-indulgent.
