Cheryl began drawing portraits in charcoal at around age twelve. She was inspired by the face and figure and was strongly compelled to sketch hu- man form throughout her childhood. Her collegiate studies in human behav- ior and psychology led her to a long career in Clinical Social Work but over the last several years Cheryl has returned to her drawings and paintings in oils.
Cheryl believes that a sound education in classical drawing skills is the foundation to good art. She has studied at the Oklahoma Academy of Clas- sical Art in Edmond, Oklahoma; Barcelona Atelier of Realist Art in Bar- celona, Spain and Florence Academy of Art in Florence, Italy.
Cheryl has won numerous awards for both her oil paintings and drawings including First Pace in oil and First Place in dry media.
Her work is represented by the Port of Aransas Art Center and Gallery, Tulsa Artery and on her website www.ccroachart.com.
