Note: I don’t have an online store, but am happy to respond to inquiries by email. I have affordable prints and zines for sale, as well as one of a kind paintings and marbled papers. I hope to make my work accessible to those who love it, so whatever your budget is, feel free to get in touch and we can talk about it. 

Sheryl Oppenheim was born in 1983, raised in Orlando, Florida, and now lives in New York City. She is a painter and maker of illegible books, an idea she first became interested in after seeing the work of Bruno Munari, and through her proximity to books, bookbinders, and marbled paper at her first job in New York, at a bookbinding supply house. She began marbling paper in 2011, and began learning suminagashi in 2016.

Her work is in many public collections, including the Metropolitan Museum of Art’s Watson Library, the Museum of Modern Art, the Walker Art Center, the New York Public Library, the Brooklyn Museum, the National Gallery of Art Library, and the National Museum of Women in the Arts. Her artist books are available through Small Editions, her friends and frequent collaborators. She also collaborates with the writer and poet Janelle Poe.
