Cheryl is a life-long artist from south-central Pennsylvania. Rich colors and gentle compositions of nature's flora and fauna inspire her canvases.
Verse in oils, pastels, acrylics, gouache, charcoal, and graphite, she equally enjoys naturalistic lifestyle photography and is a dabbler in clay. While creating, it is not uncommon that her beautiful and well-loved cats nap on her studio desk.
