Reginald was born on the 5th of April 1891 at Seasalter which is near Whitstable in Kent. It’s known that he served his country in the First World War and that during the Second World War he again did his bit by working in a munitions factory in Rochester. In 1953 he left Kent and moved down to Starcross in Devon where he began painting the moorland landscapes which in the main appear to be on the Northern Moor. He produced some fine studies of such places as Cosdon, Tavy Cleave, Belstone Moor, Great Hound Tor and Yes Tor to name but a few. During this time he met Frederick Widgery and often accompanied him on his Dartmoor excursions. It is generally considered that Sherrin became heavily influenced by Widgery in both style and medium, this being gouache and watercolour. Sherrin died in 1971 at the age of 80.
