1 - Tell me about your character and where the inspiration for Sherry Vine came from?

Sherry Vine started as a joke, just to run around the clubs and have some fun. Then I started performing and here I am! I've been inspired by so many; Carol Burnett, Debbie Harry, Pam Anderson.

2 - How do you feel when you transform into Sherry Vine ?

For me it's a costume for the character. I love it and it's fun but I don't hang around the house in drag. I feel confident when I'm "Sherry".



3 - Is there a big difference between your male form and Sherry Vine?

I think so... Keith is reserved and laid back and Sherry is all over the place. lol

4 - How do people react when you become Sherry Vine?

Depends - people can be very aggressive and mean and others can be very supportive and happy!

5 - Do you think that Drag could be considered an art form?

There's no question about that - drag IS an art form. It's an ancient art form actually.





6 - Growing up were you always attracted to dressing up and playing characters?

Yes but all characters. One day a policeman, the next Mom, the next a rock star!

7 - What was your first performance like and have you changed much since then?

The first show I sand Black Coffee as a down and out ex- Las Vegas show girl. So the style has evolved but the core is still there.

8 - What have been some of the best experiences so far?

Having other people pay for me to fly all over the world and perform and meet amazing people!
