Sheriann Ki Sun Burnham (a.k.a. Sheri Ki Sun) 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. when adopted 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.
As a fine artist, Sheri explores handmade and computational systems in creating mixed media/digital painting, sculpture, and time-based media art. She has utilized digital technologies in her artistic practice since 1981. Her work has been exhibited and published, nationally and internationally since the mid-1980’s, including: multiple ACM SIGGRAPH Art Shows and Traveling Shows, Graphite in New Zealand, Artware: Kunst und Elektronik in Germany, The New York Digital Salon and Traveling Show, John Wayne and Ontario International Airports, and the Long Beach Museum of Art. In the early 2000’s, Sheri collaborated on VR art projects at Caltech and Brown University, and in 2018 she was Visiting Artist in Digital Media at Bowling Green State University, Ohio. In 2004 she received an Individual Artist Fellowship from the Long Beach Public Corporation for the Arts (now Arts Council for Long Beach).
As a designer, Sheri brings extensive conceptual and production experience to a wide range of projects in print/digital graphics, product/surface design, web and video production. She partners with individuals, businesses and organizations, and works on projects from local to global.
