An art professional and leader in her field for over 20 years, Sheri Hoeger’s main focus has been residential interior decorative painting. Having applied her skills to walls, floors, fabric, furniture and accessories since 1988, Sheri found a demand for her original designs and launched her stencil line in 1993 as The Mad Stencilist. Sheri introduced the use of adhesive vinyl stencils to the decorative painting community in 1998 as SayWhat? for stenciled lettering and embellishments. An innovator with airbrush, amongst other techniques, Sheri shares her knowledge through her website, workshops and DVDs.
Our house is not extremely large or “European” like those that I am usually called upon to enhance in my contracting business Art to Live By. It is a farm style house in the woods, with dormer windows, knotty pine cabinets and doors and some really nice but simple architectural features. I never thought I would live in a house that was “cute” and it has been an enjoyable challenge to decorate it in a way that reflects our eclectic tastes, comfortably accommodates our lifestyle and interests and efficiently supports our home-based business.
