I create bold, expressive artwork that catches the eye and fires the imagination.  

I work quite quickly and instinctively, liberally applying acrylic paint with rubber tipped brushes, painting knives and even kitchen utensils.

 

Alongside my obsession with colour, my work bears the influence of time spent at university studying geology, my love of west Cornwall and anything that grabs my attention, like a line from a song or a bunch of plastic spades at the seaside.  

 

Whether you’re looking for a large statement piece for your home or business or something smaller to hang in a narrow space or pop on a shelf, with their striking colour palettes and expressive marks, my vibrant paintings will create an impact in any space.

"The time and effort that goes in to Cherrie's work is truly inspiring. Her work is stunning and I consider myself very fortunate to be able to have spent time seeing some of her pieces come to life!" 
Lewis Membery, photographer

My studio is on the top floor of our Victorian house in Worcester, UK where I live with my husband and our adorable cat. It’s got a south facing window, bare splintery floorboards, a paint splattered sink, plenty of storage, two wooden drying racks made by my Dad and a radio tuned to BBC 6 Music. 

 

I work quite quickly and instinctively. Once I’ve selected my colour palette I get to work with painting knives, rubber tipped brushes and colour shapers liberally applying acrylic paint, often straight from the tube, scraping and mark making.

Close examination of my work reveals mesmerising contours of colour, intriguing marks and undulating textures. 

I love the freedom of making art, the joy of experimenting and not fully knowing where it's going to lead. I want to create art that provokes a reaction from the viewer, arouses their curiosity and causes them to take a closer look.

Behind the scenes

RN-201011-GX9-1006266-web.jpg

Since my first public exhibition over a decade ago, my vibrant artwork has gained recognition and been shown across the West Midlands and in London, Surrey and St Ives.   

 

I have completed private and public commissions, including bespoke designs for windows in Worcester’s historic former Hop Market Hotel and Jackson, one of the elephant sculptures in Worcester’s Big Parade.

 

I am a co-founder of Worcestershire Open Studios, an ArtGemini Prize finalist and my work has been selected for the Society of Women Artists Annual Exhibition in London.

“We were both blown

away by Jackson! His texture is wonderful, the flashes of iridescence and neon give

him such depth. He is a triumph!

We absolutely love him."
