Meet Sherry Owens of BeautybySherryO

Today we’d like to introduce you to Sherry Owens.

Sherry, can you briefly walk us through your story – how you started and how you got to where you are today.
My story began years ago when I worked as a runway model. I discovered how to use makeup to reinvent myself. It gave me power to lift my spirits when life was hard and painful. I used it like therapy to fight back in challenging situations. I discovered I didn’t have to look like what I was going through. Later in life, I learned it was my gift. I’m now able to share this amazing experience with others.

Great, so let’s dig a little deeper into the story – has it been an easy path overall and if not, what were the challenges you’ve had to overcome?
Well, it’s truly been many ups and downs. Its one of those things that if you naturally enjoy what you do it doesn’t really feel like work. Sometimes you have to be willing to walk alone. When I first started out, I had little support. Know one really understood what I was doing, and neither did I. I just knew the connection Between me and Make up was real and personal.

When I began the journey of a Freelance Artist, I worked with any and everyone. Most of the time there was no pay. Just a Collaboration in exchange for images. Its called a TF Shoot. I worked with Photographer groups, upcoming models, Fashion Designers, Attended classes, went to workshops, Beauty Conventions and so on. It was hard, but I wouldn’t change a thing. It prepared me for the level of opportunity and Clientele I now have. I’m grateful for everyone who has allowed me to continue to grow and develop as an Artists.

Do you look back particularly fondly on any memories from childhood?
I can remember when I was about seven years old. My teacher asked the class to draw a house and a yard with flowers. Well, wasn’t able to visualize that. But I did see a fabulous eye with lashes. So thats what I drew. She said to me loudly in front of the class. Thats not art. What are you doing?

Well, I guess you could say I was manifesting my future. Wow! Thats Powerful when I think of it.
