About Sherry Jankiewicz

Born and raised in Ellicott City, Maryland, Sherry Jankiewicz studied Art Education at the University of Maryland, College Park, and began teaching middle school art in the Howard County Public School System in Maryland.  She qualified for a Fulbright Scholarship Program with UMBC in 2010, traveling abroad to Mexico to study art history.  In 2013, Sherry and a friend created a project in Blantyre, Malawi to paint a mural in a city park with orphaned children residing with the Samaritan Trust Program.  Inspired through travel and the desire for adventure, Sherry left teaching in 2016 to pursue her passion of painting and printmaking in Portland, Oregon and currently resides and works here.  When not in the studio, Sherry can be found in a yoga class, rock-climbing, hiking, and reading while sipping on Oregon’s affordable red wines.
