Amy Sherald discovered her love for art while dabbling in watercolors at St. Anne-Pacelli Catholic School.
Her art teacher, Geri Davis, recognized her potential in kindergarten and then nurtured her talent for the next 12 years.
But after leaving Pacelli, Sherald took a few detours – majoring in pre-med to please her parents until she came to her senses, waiting tables to make ends meet and returning home to care for ailing relatives. Yet, she always knew deep down inside where she was headed.
