Cheryl is an award winning artist in several mediums and currently showing in four different galleries. Her awards include one Best of Show, three 1st place, two 2nd place, two 3rd place, two Sponsors Choice, eight honorable mentions and one People's Choice award.
She has been involved in the arts most of her life not only in expression but in the enjoyment of seeing, hearing and feeling. She has worked in most mediums, including pottery, glass work, oils, acrylics, pencils, alcohol inks, writing and even finger painting. But her favorite is watercolor. Her art is currently in 5 countries and multiple states. She illustrated her first children’s book which was released in October of 2018 (Mooseberry, Mooseberry, Gooseberry Pie- ISBN-10: 1948804069, ISBN-13: 978-1948804066) and is currently working on her second book illustration with a psychotherapist in the form of a coloring book to enhance the clients therapy objectives.
She has her master’s in Human Resources from Utah State University. However, her career really began when she retired in 2012 and picked up her joy of expression through her arts. Cheryl is currently a member of the Dixie Watercolor Society (DWS), Southern Utah Art Guild (SUAG), Z-Arts, Utah Watercolor Society (UWS) and the Virgin Valley Artists Association (VVAA) and Arts to Zions. Currently living in St George, UT with her husband of almost fifty years, she wanders the red rocks of the south and travels the world looking for the next subject matter. Some of her subjects come from wildlife pictures from her son and inspiration from her daughter and six grandchildren.
“As an artist, I try to look at different subject matters that peak my curiosity and visual awareness. Painting is not just a hobby to me but my way of looking at the world and finding the beauty and joy that surrounds me.”
