Sherry Vanderstine – Web Development/Graphic Design
Sherry Vanderstine has mastered the art of communicating to the world what Engrave-A-Crete is all about. As graphic designer for the company, she is responsible for designing brochures, catalogs, emails, web pages, trailer wraps…the list goes on and on to include nearly everything the public sees from Engrave-A-Crete.
I see decorative concrete from the artistic side rather than from the construction side. I enjoy seeing what people are doing on their floors, on the walls, concrete furniture and jewelry from the artistic point, so I look at decorative concrete with that sort of eye. I find decorative concrete to be a very beautiful way of enhancing the home.
While Sherry’s creative side appreciates the artistic side of decorative concrete, she also understands that not everyone considers themselves an artist.
“Decorative concrete gives people an artistic expression without having to be an artist to do it,” Sherry says. “People are naturally creative and sometimes they just get stifled. There are all sorts of forms of art that people can use, and decorative concrete is one of those.”
Sherry believes balance in essential in life, and she’s a strong proponent for everyone making a positive contribution to the world.
In addition to working at Engrave-A-Crete, Sherry also operates her own graphic design studio. It took her some time to decide on a career, but Sherry is happy with her choice.
“When I graduated from high school, I thought I wanted to be an elementary teacher,” Sherry says. “After volunteering for a month in a kindergarten class, I knew that wasn’t for me. I looked at several options, then I decided on graphic design. I completed my Associate’s degree in computer graphics, and another in graphic design. I’ve worked for a newspaper, a box company, as a cartographer and now at Engrave-A-Crete.”
