Cheryl is an artist living near Canberra, Australia. Cheryl works with watercolour on paper and vellum. She enjoys painting a variety of subjects including Australian natives, flowers, fruit and vegetables, and more recently, insects.
Inspiration is everywhere. A shrivelled up leaf can have as much appeal as a perfect bloom. The subjects all have their own character and the thrill is in capturing that character on paper.
Cheryl's paintings are exhibited at local Canberra art shows, and in particular, botanical exhibitions such as the renowned Botanica exhibition at the Royal Botanic Gardens Sydney. Cheryl teaches illustrating plants and insects - see Workshops. Her studio is open by appointment and her greeting cards and prints can be ordered from the store page. Some originals are available, and Cheryl also takes commissions. You can keep up to date with Cheryl's work by following her on Facebook and Instagram, and by subscribing to her newsletter. She also has a YouTube channel where you can view demonstration videos. Cheryl has also created an online tutorial "Introduction to Botanical Art - Eucalyptus Leaves".
