The Heroine’s Journey of Sherri Silverman

What is the best thing that I love about my work? The surprises and beauty that appear.

What is my greatest fear? Not having time to get all my contributions out into the world.

What is the trait that I most deplore in myself? Deplore? I never think of myself that way. I may over-research. I gather so many resources that I don’t have time to incorporate them all. Maybe that is ok and just part of the process.

What is the thing that I dislike the most in my work? I do not dislike my work.

What is my greatest achievement in work? That isn’t for me to decide, but I love the feeling when I create something that I keep wanting to look at.

Where would I most like to live? I try to live where the energy feels right to me, where I am guided to reside. I’d love to own a house in a quiet, beautiful area with a garden, studio, and pool, and easy access to friends, nature, hiking trails, ocean, organic food, museums and galleries, etc.

What is my most treasured possession? My inner self.

What is my most inspirational location in my city? Anywhere there are beautiful gardens, hiking trails, ocean. Plus my inner landscape, experienced through meditation.

What books influenced my life? All of them. I’ve read a lot since I was 5. Creativity and Taoism: A Study of Chinese Philosophy, Art, and Poetry by Chang Chung-yuan. The idea of revealing the Unseen behind the seen and conveying that through art to enlighten both artist and viewer. This became the motivation for my creative work and for my
doctoral dissertation. On the Bhagavad-Gita: A New Translation and Commentary by
Maharishi Mahesh Yogi. Being established in pure consciousness and taking action from there— a key that opened my life. First meditate, then paint. Or write. Or go for a hike.
Ajit Mookerjee’s books. I found art inspiration in his Tantra Art, Tantra Asana, Yoga Art, etc.

Which people in my profession would I love to meet in 2017? 1. Anyone who appreciates my work and wants to help get it visible! 2. Art patrons to help me have the freedom to fully immerse myself in creative work and all that nourishes it. 3. Most of the artists I admire today are women. For inspiration, studio visits, and technical knowledge, some of the artists I’d love to meet are Hiroshi Senju, Nancy Lorenz, Michele Oka Doner.
