Metal Art and Sculpture
Artwork and Designs Copyright © Pierrette Sherwood
Pierrette Sherwood is a Métis artist who grew up on a dairy farm in Manitoba. She left the public service in 2012 to pursue her career as a professional artist and launched “Papillon Creations” that same year to showcase her art and vintage to the public.
She works primarily with reclaimed metals, particularly antique farming machinery and tools. The inherent character of these pieces carry a sense of history and tradition that beckon a respect for the past. Pierrette aims to capture this essence and translate it into works that draw on nostalgia and one’s relationship with the earth. Her art work has garnered local and national media attention including a recent feature in the CAA Manitoba Summer Edition (2021).
