Nature is the driving force behind my work. I’m inspired by nature’s colors, shapes, textures, and lines. These are the primary elements that guide me when I paint. It allows me to remain open and explore under big billowing clouds, be in awe of the intense light of a sunset and the dramatic darks of a storm. Always searching for the essentials for what will carry me through to my next painting. I’m interested in making paintings that evoke a sense of contemplation, inviting the viewer to engage with a sense of meandering.
CHERYL'S MEDIUM OF CHOICE
Encaustic, meaning “to burn in” in Greek, is an art form dating back to the fifth century BC. It is a versatile method of painting using beeswax-based paint and a heated palette. It is then applied to a wood surface or other porous substrate.
