Sheri Marcus is a San Francisco Bay Area artist who specializes in encaustic wax painting. She grew up in Scranton, PA, where as a child she loved to paint and draw. She was inspired by doing art projects with her grandmother and visiting museums in New York with her father. While she was still in high school she studied at the Pennsylvania School for the Arts at Bucknell University and at Carnegie Mellon University School of Art. 

After graduating from Macalester College, Sheri lived and worked in New York City. She continued taking art classes at the Art Students League, the Parsons School of Design, and the School of Visual Art.

Sheri has worked as an Art Director for Zoomedia and Creative Director for Magibox. She also had her own small web design company, the Smart Company. After moving to the Bay Area, she studied at the Academy of Art, majoring in painting. It was at the Academy that Sheri discovered encaustic wax painting, and knew that she had found her métier. She has been a full-time painter ever since.

Sheri has been represented by the North Bay Gallery in Sonoma, CA. Her studio is at ICB Artists, Sausalito CA. To arrange for a studio visit, contact
