Sheri Marcus is a San Francisco Bay Area artist who specializes in encaustic wax painting.

After receiving her B.A., Sheri moved to New York City and began a commercial art career, eventually rising to the position of Creative Director at a Web Design studio. Meanwhile, she studied art at the Parsons School of Design, the School of Visual Arts and the Art Students League. She had previously studied at Carnegie Mellon University School of Art and Pennsylvania Governor's School for the Arts at Bucknell University.

After moving to the Bay Area, she studied fine art at the graduate level at the San Francisco Academy of Art University where she discovered encaustic wax painting, and knew that she had found her métier. She has been a full-time painter ever since.
