Sheri Bakes’ work stems from an interest in wind:  atmosphere in motion. Her work pulls in and out of focus, from windswept, loosely rendered landscape to abstraction. Fine attention is given to light and its stippled effect, built up through many layers throughout a wide variety of landscapes and atmospheric moods. Bakes' work is intended to serve as respite and an aid to meditation, to shift through the days and grow with the viewer over time. 

As Kevin Chong wrote for the Globe and Mail, "Her brooding, wind-swept scenes highlight tensions not only between the sky and land, but also between the physical landscape and the world of the mind."

Bakes received a BFA from Emily Carr University of Art and Design in 1998 and began exhibiting in 2002. She lives and works on Vancouver Island, British Columbia. Bakes has exhibited in Europe, New York, Los Angeles, Seattle, Toronto and Vancouver.

Her work has been placed in numerous private collections across North America and Europe, and in permanent collections with Dubai's Emaar Properties, Enunciate Conferencing, Toronto Dominion Bank, UBC Psychiatric Hospital, Vancouver General Hospital, St. Paul's Hospital in Vancouver, BC. and Swedish Hospital in Seattle.
