With a background in fine art and art education, I have taught art, written about art and design,
and have published in national and international journals for over twenty years. My passions are fine art, folk art, humorous art, and jewelry. I collect art, vintage jewelry, beads, and make my own jewelry as well. My writing demonstrates my abilities to clearly describe and analyze works, attend to details, historical and stylistic influences, and to write in an engaging style that pays particular attention to audience. An example of my work, Art and Laughter, a book published by IB Tauris, can be found on www.amazon.com. In addition to authoring a book, my experiences as a writer include writing research reports and articles, book reviews, writing for my website (www.sherirklein.com), and technical grant writing. I would be happy to provide a extensive list of publications, or other additional information, upon request.
