“An Artist is Known by her brush”

First and foremost, I am a Christian and without God as the center of my life, my art journey would be like a canvas without anything on it.

I just hold the brush; He directs my stokes. Each layer is divinely created by Him as I paint my faith.

Cheryl paints intuitively by embracing spontaneity to allow passionate paintings to be born through a transforming layering process of acrylics and inks. Each layer informs the next story of paint.  In addition to layers often you will find sand, coffee, glass beads or perhaps even a gum wrapper invoking the question of what story is being revealed.  She paints what she feels, how she feels, and how each found object in her art continues that story.  It is her hope that you find a connection to her work and might, if only for a moment, become captivated and feel something within yourself. The art she creates are visual expressions of her inner soul, spirit and passion. 

a bit about her

I live outside of Washington D.C.  I come from a family of artists, musicians, writers and actors.  Art is my passion.  I often say I have multiple artistic expressions. The full out color and go for it expression with my Enigma and Dimensional Rendering series and then the Black and White balance of color Vertigo series.
