Sheryl Ruth Kolitsopoulos was born in Brooklyn, New York. After attending Art & Design High School in Manhattan, she received a BFA from Parsons School Of Design. She furthered her art education by attending classes at The Art Students League. Kolitsopoulos is inspired by the land and culture of Greece. Her landscapes and cityscapes of Greece capture the natural beauty of its panoramic views. They deal with the way light interacts and manipulates color, line and texture within its environment. Her figurative work captures the subject in its natural environment. They are personal conversations between herself and the subject. Drawing has always been the foundation of her creative process.
Ms Kolitsopoulos has had solo shows at Pleiades Gallery and Prince Street Gallery in NYC. She has also shown in numerous group exhibitions in Taiwan, France and the United States. Her work is in the collections of The Hammond Museum, The New York Public Library, and The Newark Public Library. Her art is also in the private collections of Mr. Nion McEvoy, Mr. Micheal Rips, as well as in collections in Taiwan, Greece and the United States. Ms Kolitsopoulos resides with her family in both New York and southern Greece.
