Fine art in watercolor and acrylics

About Cheryl

Cheryl is a Delaware artist who has had the opportunity to experience living in a variety of geographic regions of the United States and South Pacific, creating a passion for travel and for interpreting the world in paint.   Although she works occasionally in other mediums, Cheryl's primary focus is watercolor and acrylic, with watercolor in the lead.  Cheryl's paintings reflect her love of regional land- and waterscapes, local places and events, although she does not limit her subject matter to Eastern Shore themes.  She paints both in studio and en plein air, producing award-winning paintings that are held in private and public collections throughout the United States.

Cheryl has studied with numerous national and regional artists in addition to art and painting college coursework. She proudly follows in footsteps of earlier generations on both sides of her family, whose livelihoods and avocations were painting and drawing.
