Meet the Author

Bobcats in the backyard, bears on the front porch and skunks under the floor are regular occurrences for Sherry Chadwell and her artist husband, Jim Bowlin, at their home in the woods of Southwestern Oregon. As Sherry comments, "Our lives are enriched by our constant contact with Nature. Every day holds the promise of a new adventure."They have surrounded themselves with animals, including wild foundlings they have raised and released, and have embraced the lessons these temporary members of the family have taught.Sherry is a wildlife artist, working primarily in pencil and watercolor. She and Jim are happiest when they are outdoors hiking, fishing, canoeing, or otherwise enjoying the wilderness. Sherry also spends time "running across fields, swamps, hills and gullies," training her tracking German shepherd, Sage.
