Sherry Beck is a lifetime resident of Indiana; she grew up drawing, painting and coloring anything that involved creating. She loved working with clay so much, and at one point owned her own Ceramic business. In the spring of 2013, she met a group of older gentlemen carving at one of the woodworking establishments in Indianapolis. They asked her, “Do you want to learn to carve? It’s free,” That’s all they had to say and she was hooked. Sherry fell in love with carving and worked vigilantly to develop her skills. She entered many carving competitions and has had the pleasure to win “Best in Show.” In her journey she was introduced to the art of woodburning and is basically self-taught, but within the last few years she has taken classes from nationally respected pyrography artists. When Sherry began her pyrography adventure, she found it very difficult to find artists that would share their knowledge. It became her goal to share everything she could with her students and MASW is proud to have her fulfill that goal here.
