Sheri Hausman is a textile artist who lives in Hermann Missouri, the heart of Missouri wine country. Her art is self-taught... the process went in many directions before she felt it really become her own. Sheri began making quilts in 1990 in the most traditional way possible at the encouragement of a friend, and fell in love with the process, needle and thread moving through cloth... and then all of the design possibilities. Her quilts are storytelling vehicles, tactile statements that combine elements of photography, fiber, paint, pencil and layers of color suggesting her voice, her story…and inviting viewers to stop and involve themselves.
Lately her work is reflective of the women in her family, of commonality. Sheri is looking for the common thread that runs through all who came before her. Largely using an image transfer technique, and acrylic paints and glazes, she collages the pieces of her history to capture moments of time on whole cloth.
Sheri’s quilts have appeared in several textile art shows and her work has been published in Creative Quilting: The Journal Quilt Project, edited by Karey Bresenhan
