About the Artist

Sherrie Russel Meline has been a professional artist since the mid~1970s. She has always been interested in art and her talent has been apparent and acknowledged since early childhood. Born in Madison, Wisconsin, Sherrie attended high school in Tokyo, Japan and in 1972 she graduated with honors in fine art from the University of Wisconsin, Madison.

Duck Stamps

Since it’s conception in 1934, the Federal Duck Stamp Program is one history’s greatest achievement in conservation. 98% of every Federal Duck Stamp dollar goes directly into the Migratory Bird Conservation Fund.

Note Cards

The additional use of mounts and study skins provide the source for the fine feather detail also evident in Sherrie’s work. The paintings are an acrylic wash delicately applied layer by layer from a self- mixed palette. All the colors are mixed from combinations of red, yellow, blue, black and white.


Sherrie and her husband, Kevin, publish and distribute her limited edition prints nationally through their gallery, Wingbeat of Mt. Shasta. Sherrie also shows at various art, sport and wildlife art shows across the Country.

Our Location

Sherries interest in waterfowl was not expressed in her work until after she moved to Mount Shasta California in 1980. Northern California provides an abundant resource of material for Sherrie’s paintings. She feels that observing and photographing waterfowl in both their native and captive environment are essential for establishing proper bird attitudes.


Sherrie has been a member of the Pacific Flyway Decoy Association and has served on the Board of Directors since 1986. Ducks Unlimited appointed her as Honorary National Trustee.
