About This Year's Jurors:

Sherry Mitchell

Sherry has been watercolour painting for more than 45 years. Her chosen style is termed photorealistic - it combines classic botanical accuracy with an emphasis on light, shadow, shape and colour. Since 1995, she has won awards for her work regionally, nationally and internationally. Currently, Sherry has two paintings included in an international botanical exhibition at the Canadian Museum of Nature in Ottawa; it continues until October of this year. While Sherry has completed hundreds of paintings of native and cultivated plants and flowers, native flora remain her favourite subjects.
