Cheryl has been interested in craft from a young age. Her mother, her mother’s aunt, and her mother’s best friend were all Milliners. Her aunt and grandmother were always making things with their hands. Whether it was cooking, knitting, crocheting, sewing or gluing, Cheryl was surrounded by craft.
Over the years, Cheryl has attended many painting workshops with different Folk Artists or Decorative Artists to further her knowledge and diversify her painting and teaching skills. She finds inspiration in her students and nature. Working mainly with acrylics, oil, watercolour, inks and scratchboard, Cheryl is able to paint on wood, concrete, metal, fabric, canvas, paper, glass, terracotta and ceramics.
