April 2013: Cheryl D. Edwards

March 25-April 26, 2013
Play (oil, ink, acrylics)
Reception: Fri., April 11, 2012

Cheryl D. Edwards was born in Miami Beach, Florida. She began her studies in art during 1988 in New York City in a class at the Art Student League taught by the late, Ernest Crichlow. She has been living in Washington, DC for the past 19 years. Cheryl has exhibited in many shows in the Washington, DC, Miami, New York, Hong Kong, Maryland, Texas and Virginia area.

Her interest in art stems from her fascination of the human body as a whole. Her medium is oil, ink and acrylics. After 15 years of painting nudes she has become fascinated with nature and how it relates to humanity. She says, '...the transfer of an image to canvas begins from the process of having the ability to capture the spirit of a person or object being observed. ...the person's soul shines through the process of capturing the light and dark areas. Art allows me to travel into all realms of possibility. As I look at my life, I have found that I have always chosen ART...'
