Sheryl Oppenheim


Sheryl Oppenheim was born in 1983, raised in Orlando, Florida, and now lives in Brooklyn, NY. 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. Her artist books are in a number of public collections, including the Metropolitan Museum of Art’s Watson Library, the Walker Art Center, the New York Public Library, the Brooklyn Museum, 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. You can purchase their zine to support Black Lives Matter here.
