Sheryl Cozad's portraits, imaginative paintings, and illustrations have found homes across the U.S., Canada, and Great Britain. Originally trained as an art historian, Sheryl received a Master of Fine Arts in Design and Painting from the University of Oklahoma. She has taught art history and studio classes on the college level for almost two decades in addition to teaching children's programs and working with older adults since 1987.
