About The Artist

"I am a Métis artist, writer, and vocalist based in Salt Spring Island, BC. Creativity is my passion. I express myself through, paint, photography, sculpture, and song. The subject often directs the medium. I am most interested in expressing that which has no language: The raw, unedited emotion that lies in each of us."

This is a photo of sherry leigh williams, an artist in Salt Spring Island, BC.

Sherry Leigh Williams was a self-taught and award-winning artist before completing a three-year diploma program at Victoria College of Art, followed by a BFA at the University of Victoria, BC where she graduated with distinction in 2019. Williams has written and illustrated children's books, published short stories and sang as a vocalist with two bands in Victoria, BC Southbound and Friends. She also sang with world renown violinist, Sari Alesh. She is a highly creative, community-minded individual gravitating between her public life, and her Sidney, BC studio and her mountain home and studio on Salt Spring Island. As a talented Métis artist, she has exhibited her work in art galleries around Canada.
