HER FAB STORY
Art inspires us to see the beauty within
Once upon a time, Sherita Sparrow was perplexed by her dream career as a Graphic Designer, working for a national magazine company. She could be creative, get paid, and avoid the “Starving Artist” stigma. Yet, deep down in her heart, Sherita knew her “dream job” did not align with her professional goals. It lacked vibrancy and human connection. It is a chance encounter with a flier that leads Sherita to her destiny. She's invited to create art with seniors living in a nursing home. This is the turning point that changes her life.
At the start of the session, Sherita feels nervous and unsure of the outcome. By the end of the hour session, something is revealed... There are smiles and a sense of accomplishment showing on each resident’s face. At this moment she realizes art transforms lives beyond words and she can make a difference. So she follows her intuition and makes a leap! From that moment she knew there was no turning back. Sherita realizes she is called to help this unique population.
After earning two art degrees and more than17 years of experience working with seniors and individuals with special needs, Sherita is a World Class Therapeutic Art Practitioner. She is highly regarded as a teacher, speaker, and Art Master. She's featured in publications like Delaware News Journal, Delaware Today Magazine, Catonsville Times, About.com, and Caring for the Ages Magazine. Sherita is also a Certified Activity Professional, Certified Dementia Practitioner, and Certified Art Practitioner. She’s received many awards and recognition for volunteering in her community.
