I'm Cheryl. I've been an artist since I was old enough to understand that the pictures I rendered in crayon were well beyond what most five year olds scribble. I enjoyed 2 years at the University of Wyoming in the Art Department until the lack of an income drove me to Phoenix for two years, then to San Diego. I transferred my credits to the University of California at San Diego and worked my way through an Art Degree, which I FINALLY finished in 1995. I've since worked professionally for private clients for 8 years muraling and creating custom jewelry pieces. I have been selling my handmade wire art pieces to boutique and art museum gift shops for nearly as long.
I have been teaching classes and workshops in most forms of beading, as well as speaking publicly for many groups, organizations and conferences with great enthusiasm for many years. And, I've enjoyed many appearances on local television news programs providing my expertise in beading, as well as discussing my own personal artwork.
I have an amazing family - 4 incredible children, a gorgeous husband I am very proud of, two crazy disobedient dogs, a crappy cat that hates me and Vlad the Beta fish.
Many years ago, I had cancer and learned and important lesson about living. It is my mission to not only live but to live well - with great charity to others - in the name of Jesus. Be selfless - not selfish...God Bless.
