Cheri was born in Enumclaw, Washington, a small rural town of dairies and horse and cattle ranches at the foot of Mt. Rainier. Her grandfather was a cattleman and was a big influence on the subject matter of her paintings.
Cheri has been painting farm animals and teaching oil painting for over 25 years, and she currently resides in San Antonio, Texas.
Early in her career, she found the right teacher, who taught a method she wanted to learn. Working with Ron Lukas, a protégé of Russian Impressionist Sergei Bongart, Cheri developed her own distinctive style of painting.
Cheri began by copying paintings and quickly moved on to painting portraits and still life's, extending her drawing skills. She did every class, workshop, and mentoring session she could.
