Artist Biography

Cheryle's love of the arts started as a young child. Her parents appreciated the arts and encouraged her participation in them. When she looks back she realizes she has been so fortunate-perspective and value studies, design and creative inspiration, color and theory studies have been part of her life's journey.

Putting it all together has turned into a love for the realistic style of painting using strong colors and life- like photo realism. Recognition for these qualities has led to many opportunities for Cheryle's art.

When Louisville Slugger Bat Company celebrated its 125th anniversary, Cheryle was one of 40 area artists invited to decorate the commermorative bat for a fund raising auction held in Louisville, KY.

Madison Indiana Art Guild's annual art show and competition netted Cheryle a first place in the still life category.

The Sthur Museum in Grand Island, NE - a prominent Prairie Pioneer Museum - chose Cheryle as one of ten artists to paint limited edition prints. The profits from these prints earn much needed funds for the museum as Federal funding was eliminated.

Cheryle and her husband, Larry, moved to Indiana across the river from Louisville, KY, in 2006. Her art can be seen in the Gallery on Pearl in New Albany, IN, and at the Harrison County Artisan Center in Corydon, IN.

Teaching is a fulfilling part of her life. She enjoys guiding students to find their success with paint, brush, pencil or crayons. Her studio is next to her home in the rolling hills of the countryside of Indiana, better know as Kentuckiana.

Cheryle went to Concordia Teachers College in Ann Arbor, MI, and the University of Oregon, Eugene, OR, studing art and education. As an extra blessing she had an excellent art teacher in High School, Gerald Brommer. All thngs for a her growing up she was surrounded with family that encouraged art and music endeavors.

As of this writing, Cheryle has 4 children, 9 grandchildren, and 3 great greandchildren. All, blessings in their own special ways.
