Sheri Gaynor is a Dream Doer in spades. She has dedicated her life to helping other women discover their authentic lives and reach for their deepest dreams. She founded Feisty Females Coaching and Consulting and her innovative Creative Spark Studio in the Rocky Mountains of Colorado. She shares her creative vision on Artistically Speaking Talk Show 7/11/2010.
Sheri supports individuals through her one-on-one transformational coaching and on-going expressive arts and healing workshops and retreats. She spent the first half of her life attempting-without much success-to walk the straight and narrow cultural path. As someone with an insatiable curiosity, she spent her early years trying on a lot of hats, trying desperately to make them fit-photojournalist, rubber stamp artist, t-shirt designer and psychotherapist, to name a few-attempting to figure out what she wanted to “BE” when she grew up. The journey wasn’t always an easy one and much was learned through the school of hard knocks; a formidable education. Little did she know that by walking that wide, crooked and creative road, she would find the trail to her authentic self and living the life of her dreams.
Sheri is the author of Creative Awakenings: Envisioning the Life of Your Dreams Through Art. She is a Licensed Clinical Social Worker, a Registered Expressive Arts Therapist and Transformational Life Coach. In 1981 she received her Associate of Arts degree from the Art Institute of Ft. Lauderdale, with a major in photography. She received her Masters in Clinical Social Work from Barry University in 1989. Sheri’s art has been shown internationally and she has contributed various freelance writings and photographs to such publications as the Miami Herald, the Sun Sentinel, the Florida Post newspapers and the Aspen Times Weekly. She has been featured in Somerset Digital as well as two books by artist/author Susan Tuttle. She will be featured in an upcoming book by North Light books, entitled Mixed-Media Paintbox.
