Having painted numerous commissioned pieces and shared her artwork with family and friends over the years, Cheryl  is excited to have her first public show at 317 Main.

Cheryl lives in Portland, Maine with her husband, two kids and their dog, Sally. She has a degree in environmental studies and sociology and has developed a strong sense of stewardship and community through her years of work for a local, non-profit organization and volunteering in local schools.
