Artistic, Innovative, and Creative

The multi-faceted talents of super-realist painter Sherry Wolf has led to the creation of her exceptional handbag collection. Not only are her handbags head turners and red carpet show stoppers but they are surprisingly and entirely practical. Sherry Wolf, a New York icon stemming back from her Studio 54 days and a favorite of young Hollywood, is passionate about her glamorous designs and her use of the most luxurious supple leathers. They are multi-functional and versatile yet her detailing adds edgy sophistication. Her innovative collections are inspired by raw sensuality. It is no surprise that Sherry Wolf’s handbags have become one of the most sought after by Hollywood celebrities.

Her high-end handbags quickly took off after her launch in 2004 and were sold to New York’s chic Henri Bendel’s, Bloomingdales, Nordstoms, as well as countless boutiques across the county. According to Shelia Aimette, fashion director for accessories and shoes at Bloomingdales, “We are always trying to get the most innovative and freshest young designers. Our customer is very forward and is always looking for the next thing, and Sherry Wolf represents that”.

The inspirations for all of Sherry’s creations start with her unique artistic visions. “ABC” New York Nightly News describes her as a “visionary genius”. She works within the difficult field of contemporary American realist painting, earning a devoted following and critical acclaim. Her works can be found in the most prestigious collections including the permanent collection of the Albright-Knox Museum. Her Hollywood series…paintings of Marilyn Monroe, Groucho Marx, Humphrey Bogart, Cary Grant, and others…is housed in the private collection of renowned movie producer Jerry Weintraub ( producer of the Oceans 11,12,13 series). These paintings were seen on the Barbara Walters Special with Julia Roberts, Brad Pitt, George Clooney, Matt Damon and Andy Garcia.

Educated in Art History with a Magna Cum Laude degree from the University of Maryland Sherry proceeded to establish the Adult Art Program at George Washington University. She was commissioned by the White House during the Nixon administration to create a series of paintings as well as heading the art and design department at NBC Washington bureau working directly with anchorman David Brinkley. After moving to New York, Sherry began her independent painting career.

In addition to her painting career, Sherry has worked in other areas of the fashion world. Her first accessory designs were snapped up by major fashion stores such as Bergdorf Goodman, Saks Fifth Avenue, Bloomingdales and Neiman Marcus. Her work in fashion design led to her work in precious metals. Her critically acclaimed 18 karat gold jewelry collection was launched at Neiman Marcus. QVC quickly approached Sherry to debut her unique silver jewelry for a series of shows. Sherry introduced her Men’s Neckwear collection in the mid-nineties and her famous Baltimore Bicentennial tie was worn by President Bill Clinton.

Sherry has attracted attention form newspaper columnist to talk show hosts. Charmed by her wit and ease, television programs such as NBC’S “Today” Show, “CNN”, and ABC “Nightly News”, have recognized her appeal. “People” Magazine photographed and reported on Sherry at length describing her as “one of the cleverest artist and designers to come onto the scene in a long time” and a host of other publications have expressed similar thoughts on this most prolific individual. Her recent coverage of her handbags has been seen in countless fashion and entertainment magazines such as “Lucky”, “Marie Claire”, “InStyle” , to name a few.

Sherry is flattered by all of the attention from celebrities and the media but this modest designer always remains down to earth. “I stay focused and work long hours to give my loyal customers styles that fuse the current trends, unique shapes with practical and functional elements.

Sherry lived in the heart of New York for years but she now splits her time between her country home in Maryland and her apartment in Manhattan.
