“I equate my work with building an environment, transforming my inner thoughts into reality. Beginning with the physical process, I work in layers. I am involved in solving visual and verbal complexities such as design, narrative and personal style where the quality on all levels is vital. Not one precedes the other, therefore shaping my world by using metaphors and allowing me to comment on the circumstances we are faced with as a comprehensive society.”

Cheryl’s work has often been compared to Dr. Seuss on crack.
