Early Digital

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.

Presented here are a collection of early works: images and wall sculptures from 1981-1990.
