Cheryl’s primary medium is oil. Her subjects are diverse - portraiture, painting urban and rural landscapes, animals and environments she entitles “dreamcapes.” She believes that art should be beautiful to counteract the images flashing across our television and computer screens daily. Arguably this is Cheryl’s form of escapism, but she feels that art should be a tangible dream of what the universe can be, full of beauty and color and light. The act of painting is a form of moving meditation for her. In this frenetic world with so much drawing our attention in many different directions, Cheryl’s hope is that the viewer of her art may feel a moment of centering. She believes that we are all connected at a deep level. Her art comes from that deep level and she hopes that this is reflected on her canvases.
