Sheriann Ki Sun Burnham is a visual artist and designer working in mixed media/digital fine art, graphic design, and creative production.

Born in Seoul, South Korea, Sheri came to the U.S. at the age of two. Growing up in an artistic household, her artist mother provided ample materials and encouragement for her various creative endeavors. She received a B.A. in Studio Art from California State University Long Beach in 1982, and since then has pursued a dual career in fine art and design.

Sheri has used computers in her artistic practice for over 35 years, blending new technologies with her traditional art background. Sheri became interested in computers in college, and was in the first computer graphics class offered in the CSULB Art Department, where she programmed graphics software for class use.

As a fine artist Sheri’s work takes the form of mixed media combinations of computer imagery with traditional art media, and digital works created entirely on the computer. She uses both “off the shelf” and her own proprietary software in developing a wide range of unique image making processes. Sheri’s fine art has been exhibited and published nationally and internationally since the mid-1980’s.

As a design professional, Sheri has over 30 years conceptual and production experience in graphics and design. She has run an independent art and design service since 1993 specializing in graphic design, and online media development. In 2010 Sheri joined a long time creative colleague in forming Pepe & Sherina Designs, focused on developing creative UPcycled products; and is creative director for their start-up venture UPcyclity® The Upcycling Community.

Sheri actively seeks art exhibition, commissions and freelance design opportunities.
