Cheryl Wilson

I am an abstract artist. I paint intuitively by embracing spontaneity to allow passionate paintings to be born through a transforming layering process of acrylics and inks. Each layer informs the next story of paint. In addition to my many layers of paint, often you will find sand, coffee, glass beads, book pages, music scores, or perhaps even a gum wrapper invoking the question of what story is being revealed. I paint what I feel, how I feel, and each found object in my art continues that story.

When I was a child, I traveled all over the country and even overseas as my father was a musician and composer in the military. He was in protocol and played for special events like the Queen of England the funeral of President Kennedy, and my favorite, small quaint towns in Spain.  I remember eating paella valenciana made in large pans cooked outside in the village.  I remember sleeping in beds where the sheets were still damp and the housekeeper of the small establishment handing me a ceramic bed pan filled with hot water to warm the bed.  I remember drink communion from a shared goblet filled with red wine. I ran with the sheep in small villages where the women walked freely with large baskets on their heads filled with fresh laundry. At night I would dream and make up stories with all these new experiences. They were colorful and dance like.

Those experiences all had a very deep impact on my love for life, color, and people.  My parents taught me to be free to explore and I loved learning about everything around me.  I especially loved the colors of Spain.

As an adult, I was encouraged by my parents to enter the corporate world, get an education, obtain degrees, and enter the professional arena.  So, I started my art journey later in my life after I started a business in the corporate world of Project Management.  The life-changing event that turned the corporate pen into a paintbrush was the dark world of Alzheimer’s that struck her mother. I could not wait any longer to paint in the event that world captured me as well. Leaving the boardroom behind, giving up the black high heels was easy.  This new language expressed on canvas that was waiting to emerge.

This language, now on canvas expresses the freedom and unbound passion of my childhood to once again create my stories with paint and let my art direct itself without fear or influences that has previously stifled my intuitive style."

As soon as my brush hits my painting something magical happens.  My brush takes on my emotions and creates my personal signature.  Each piece of art I create is unique and created from a depth within.
