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. Recently she has had an increased focus on painting threatened species. She hopes that through her painting and teaching, she will encourage people to look at the natural world with curiosity and fascination and therefore be more inclined to look after it.
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. She has created two online tutorials - Introduction to Botanical Art - Eucalyptus Leaves, and Introduction to Botanical Art - Acacia, or Golden Wattle. There are links to these on the Workshops page. She also has a YouTube channel where you can view demonstration videos.
Cheryl's studio is open by appointment and her greeting cards, prints and other items can be ordered from the store page. Some originals are available, and Cheryl also takes commissions.
