Painter, graphic designer and art director, Sher Dunshee-Menton has had a varied successful art career spanning several decades.
Born in Iowa, she began studying art during her formative years in suburban Chicago. Following the sudden death of her father, she continued her art studies at the University of Iowa.
After finishing college, Sher segued seamlessly into commercial art working as a TV art director, a graphic designer, art director and finally became the first female commercial art director for a leading international electronics firm.
After 20+ years successfully creating commercial art for corporate America, the work no longer satisfied her creative needs. Sher along with her late husband, James, took an extended sailing sabbatical. Nearly a decade later they returned to Arizona in support of family.
Ceased by the NYAbEx painting aspirations of her youth, Sher refocused on developing her own form of abstract painting. She studied with local professional artists and painters developing her unique abstract painting style fusing mixed media collage with oils. She has devoted herself entirely to continuing to evolve her artwork.
