From a young age Cherie realized she had an artistic gift . Her natural talent was recognized at school where she was awarded with a number of artistic awards.
Her inspiration for her paintings derives from being surrounded by nature and animals all her life .
From being brought up helping run her parents petshop , breeding koi with her father, to living right next to a reserve , her love for all animals big and small has flourished over the years.
Having developed her own style through hours of study of techniques at Julian Ashton , The Royal Art Society and Peter Wale’s Fur and Feather class , Cherie has continually worked to improve her art.
“ Drawing is the key to better painting. “ Cherie says . “
“ Once you learn how to use the medium properly , you develop a better respect for it. Instead of making trench holes in your sketch book , you can take the knowledge you learnt and apply it , your subject matter will teach your what to do , to the point you become one with it spiritually, and use it in amazing ways . “
