Sheri Munce is a Williamston, Michigan artist specializing in reverse painting on glass. Her abstract style uses compelling story telling and whimsical imagery to produce one-of-a-kind original art that moves the soul. Her original pieces are on display in unique venues and private collections around the US.
Sheri has found the need to separate "the ego" from her creation process in order to let the divine creativity flow through her. As an outward sign of this, Sheri has dropped the “ri” in her artist signature and now signs her work as “She.” To quote one of the great minds of our time, Joseph Campbell, She is "following her bliss" for her own fulfillment and the enjoyment of those who appreciate her creations.

We ponder. We innovate. We design. We amaze. We've always viewed our sculptures as an exercise in improvisation, from start to finish. Rather than beginning with a preconceived idea of the finished piece, our sculptures first begin to take shape in the initial process of selecting their constituent scrap components, as certain pieces of steel suggest certain aesthetic and structural possibilities. These possibilities are then further explored; some rejected, some retained, and then eventually executed as composition proceeds into construction.
