Biography


Growing up in Southern California with strong influence by a line of artist in her family, particularly her father, with his continuous encouragement Cheryl had dreams of a fine art career. Moving to Colorado in the mid 70’s was quite a change.

While her art took a backseat to supporting a family and career in Finance she still found other creative ways to engage her artistic talents. Her desire to paint and draw never diminished always with hopes to reopen her artistic voice. After not painting for 40 years, 2 years ago upon retirement, with the encouragement of family and friends she reentered the beloved artistic world. She found the art mediums had changed over the years. Cheryl found a passion for Pastels with their richness of colors, sparkle, versatility and the immediacy of working with this medium. Mostly self-taught she has been influenced and worked with current artist Lorenzo Chavez, Dianne Fechenbach, Bruce Gomez, Liz Hayward Sullivan and Kim Loider. Cheryl is focusing on the importance of composition, values and the “play of light & shadows” within the landscape.
 
The love for Travel, photography and painting both plein air and in the studio, has given her endless inspiration for new paintings.

Her work has been accepted into several Juried Art Shows, Local Galleries along with local Library Gallery Exhibits.
