Cheryl is an artist that paints primarily in the plein-air-tradition. She is a fourth generation Colorado native, with a great appreciation of nature and the environment and the preservation of both. Born and raised in Colorado and with parents that enjoyed the outdoors, Cheryl was introduced at an early age to the beauty of the Rocky Mountains and developed her own love for the landscape that influences her artwork today.
Cheryl paints mainly with oil but loves to work with watercolor as well. She states, "Keeping the painting fresh, not over-worked is part of the fun and challenge of a good artist. “I want the viewer to be able to feel what I felt when painting the piece..... feel the warm sun, or the cool breeze, or whatever else is going on nearby and therefore capture the essence of the scene for themselves.”
Cheryl is a Signature Member of Oil Painters of America, Signature member and Vice President of the American Impressionist Society and a Signature member of Plein Air Artists of Colorado.
