Sheryl Jaffe

Sheryl Jaffe has been making and exhibiting her artwork throughout NY and New England for decades. She works with organic materials, handmade paper, clay, watercolor, printmaking inks, and found objects to create 2- and 3-dimensional works that are reminiscent of the human body and the strength and frailty of the natural world. She has taught art, ceramics, printmaking, and papermaking at museums, public schools and art centers including the University of Massachusetts, Porter Phelps Huntington Museum and Matenwa Community School in Haiti. Jaffe was a resident artist at The Barn, Edward Albee Foundation and at Yellowstone National Park. She studied traditional papermaking in Japan and China and prefers living with handmade objects.
