In producing contemporary Australian landscapes, Sheryl draws upon the topography of the land, then paints what she visualises as most significant. Her work is ever evolving along with the landscape that she paints. In the Wurundjeri District Series, the landscape and trees have almost a primitive simplicity to them to convey an ancient land. The work of Fred Williams and John Olsen have had the biggest influence in her work.
