Bio

From Suburban Mom to Artisan, Sherri Manes transformed. Sherri was a stay at home Mom for her 3 children, Orie, Nikki and Aurora. She devoted all of her time to Danny, her husband, and her children. When all 3 graduated from high school and left her nest, Sherri neared depression. What was she going to do with herself and all of the time she had on her hands? Danny and Sherri were at a craft show and Sherri’s love for horses lead her to a metal sculpture of a horse. She told Danny, “I think I can do better than this!” Sherri signed up for a welding class, and Danny offered to build her a workshop. Sherri, replied, let’s see how this class goes... One week of welding class, Sherri arrived home and told Danny, “Build me that workshop”. The rest is history. And her time was filled with creating beautiful art from all sorts of metal into amazing sculptures and inspirations. Her time quickly filled with family too, when her family grew to include a daughter in law, Treasure, and grandchildren Granger and Phalyn; son in law, Chase and two granddaughters Finley and Farrah. Sherri lives in Hornbeck, Louisiana. Her love for horses comes from her childhood. She has always had horses. How strange is it that she would marry Danny and his last name is MANES?
